Tampa Bay RHP James Shields said he would like to take one of his jerseys and one from LHP David Price, cut them in half and sew them together so each jersey is a combination of the two. Shields said that might be the best way to commemorate Price and himself joining an exclusive 200-200 club.
The two Rays are just the seventh set of teammates to strike out 200 batters each in consecutive seasons.
"It means a lot to us," Shields said. "It's pretty special to do it with a guy like him. He's one of my best friends in the game of baseball. How hard we've worked over the past couple of years, it's been pretty amazing to watch."
