HOUSTON - Only two days before the Rice baseball program hosts an NCAA Super Regional at home at Reckling Park, junior right-hander Bryan Price was the 45th player selected overall on Thursday's opening day of the 2008 Major League Baseball amateur draft.
Price was taken by the Boston Red Sox organization in the supplemental round, the so called "sandwich" round between the draft's official first and second rounds. He was the first pitcher taken by the Red Sox, the defending World Series champions. He was also the 13th right-handed pitcher taken overall.
A 6-foot-4 native of Marble Falls, Tex., Price shares the team lead in appearances (27) and is sixth on the staff in innings (44.1) and seventh in strikeouts (50). He has held 161 opponents to a composite .224 batting average and recorded saves on the road against nationally-ranked Long Beach State and at Texas. Price averages 10.2 strikeouts per nine innings of work.
There were only six rounds (plus two supplemental rounds) completed on the first day of the MLB draft. The draft is scheduled to resume on Friday (June 9) beginning at 10:30 am (Central Time).
Rice hosts longtime rival Texas A&M in a best-of-three Super Regional series Saturday, Sunday and Monday (if necessary) at Reckling Park. Game times are set for 2 pm and 6 pm, respectively, the first two days. A game three start time is still to be determined. Every game of the series will be broadcast nationally on the ESPN networks. The winner of the Super Regional advances to the College World Series next week in Omaha, Nebraska.
