During a March 8 spring training game, Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price adjourned to the dugout to towel off his sweaty neck, but somehow he did so with such enthusiasm that it caused a neck spasm that sidelined him for five days. "I was just drying my head off in between innings,'' he said, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Manager Joe Maddon joked that in the future he would eye the towels of competing teams with suspicion. "You never know,” he said, according to USA Today. “The Orioles may have thrown that little extra towel hardener in there of some kind."
