Nashville may not have a major league baseball team, but it is home to two of the game’s biggest stars, who are now World Champions. 

The Boston Red Sox celebrated yet another World Series Title on Wednesday with a huge parade.  And this was a first for both Mookie Betts and David Price, who are enjoying their first title. 

Betts, who was drafted by the Red Sox, has made his way up through the minor league system and has been a spark plug for this Boston offense over the past couple of years.  The Overton grad is also being considered for the American League MVP this season. 

As for Murfreesboro native and former Vanderbilt star David Price, he’s been a bit of a journeyman. Price spent time in Tampa Bay, Toronto and Detroit before landing in Boston.   

“I mean this is why I came to Boston.  This is the city of champions and to be able to be a part of a championship team in Boston is so special, ” said David Price. 

Both Price and Betts spend time in Nashville during the off-season, training at Vanderbilt’s top-grade facility.
