David Price gets ticket for ... backing into a parking spot?

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Rays ace and 2012 AL Cy Young winner David Price likes to keep fans apprised of his comings and goings on Twitter. Unlike many athletes, he's an entertaining follow. Note that when someone tried to tell him his curveball was a weakness that Price correctly pointed out to check the "saber" stats.

The latest: Price got a ticket from a police officer for a pretty absurd reason:

I don't care for comments like these from fans. It's not about the money when you get a ticket for a BS reason. It's the principle. I'd be annoyed at getting a ticket like this even if it only cost me a nickel.

Maybe the cop is a disgruntled Marlins fan?
