Rays’ Price warm-up? Cow-milking contest

LHP David Price milked his first cow before Friday’s game when he competed against Angels INF Luis Jimenez in the Angels’ 40th annual cow-milking contest.

“I don’t think I ever even touched a cow or been within arm’s length of a cow,” Price said.

Price used a technique he learned earlier in the week from RHP Josh Lueke, using a surgical glove filled with water.

Price was so unfamiliar with cow milking that he thought he was milking a male cow.
