BERKELEY – Former Cal pitcher Bryan Price, a member of the Golden Bears’ Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2011, was selected as the new manager of the Cincinnati Reds, it was announced today (Oct. 22) by the Reds’ organization. Price, 51, replaces Dusty Baker as Cincinnati’s manager after serving as the team’s pitching coach for the past four seasons.

With Price being tabbed as the manager of the Reds, Cal baseball currently has two former players - Oakland A's manager Bob Melvin and Price - managing a Major League club.

One of the top pitchers in Cal baseball history, left-hander Price produced 25 wins with 11 complete games and 235 strikeouts. He owns the Bears’ record with 374.2 innings pitched, while he is third in career victories and fifth in career strikeouts.

In 1983, Price received the Clint Evans Award as the team's MVP after tying for the Pac-10 lead with 87 strikeouts. He went on to pitch in the minor leagues for the California Angels and Seattle Mariners organizations, compiling a 31-19 minor league record with a 3.74 ERA in 90 games.

Price later became the pitching coach for the Seattle Mariners from 2000-05 and the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2006-09 (working for Melvin  in both Seattle and Arizona). He has served as pitching coach for the Cincinnati Reds since 2009. Price was named the 2007 Major League Coach of the Year by Baseball America.

This past season, Price’s Reds pitching staff had the fourth-best ERA in the Major Leagues and the most strikeouts in the National League.
