Trade a Baseball Player, Get a Dog?

 

TampaBay.com Pitcher David Price was recently traded from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Detroit Tigers, and he's bringing something unique to his new team -- his French Bulldog, Astro!

Astro was a star in his own right alongside the MLB pitcher in Tampa -- he was featured in a bobblehead giveaway at Tropicana Field, appeared in television commercials, and received the keys to the city after Price won the Cy Young Award in 2012.

When asked about Astro, Price's new manager Brad Ausmus said he wasn't exactly sure if dogs were allowed in the Tigers clubhouse, but here's hoping! It sounds like Astro would help keep the locker room loose before a game.
