Bryan Price has never managed a professional baseball team. That is true. He has been a MLB pitching coach since 2001. Along the way he has accumulated a few awards. In 2011 he was Baseball Weekly’s Pitching Coach of the Year. In 2007 Baseball America named him Major League Coach of the Year. He joined the Cincinnati Reds’ staff in 2009 and has turned the pitching staff around. Under Dick Pole’s watch, the Reds’ pitching staff was nothing to write home about.
