Rays Pitcher Josh Lueke Borrows David Price’s Jersey, Confuses Fans Asking for Autographs During Batting Practice

Rays Pitcher Josh Lueke Borrows David Price's Jersey, Confuses Fans Asking for Autographs During Batting PracticeJosh Lueke, the newest member of the Tampa Bay Rays pitching staff, had fans doing a double-take Wednesday.

After getting called up to the big leagues on Tuesday, the youngster didn’t have a batting practice jersey for Wednesday’s pregame. So, he borrowed the No. 14 jersey of star pitcher David Price.

Lueke and Price then signed autographs, leaving room for some confusion by Oakland fans about which player was the actual Price — despite a serious lack of physical resemblance.

Now, the only issue is finding Price a new uniform because according to Lueke, he isn’t getting his original back.

“This is going on eBay,” said Lueke. “Maybe I’ll try to get him to sign it first.”

Lueke was sent back down to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, so he hopefully hurried on getting that autograph.
