David Price wasn’t the only one who received a hero’s welcome this week.
The Boston Red Sox introduced Price, who signed a seven-year, $217 million contract, at a press conference Friday, before which the pitcher’s family received flowers. Price’s dog, Astro, wasn’t in attendance for the ceremony, unfortunately, but the Sox still have big plans for the pooch.
Astro has been around since Price’s days with the Tampa Bay Rays. The left-hander isn’t shy about bringing him places, either, so don’t be surprised if the awesome French bulldog pops up at Fenway Park this season and beyond.
