David Price’s first pitch at Comerica Park on Saturday night was to Austin Jackson. It marked Price’s third start with the Tigers, but his first at home.

A few days after Price was traded to the Tigers, he tweeted about the new “walk-out” song that he had to select. He said that since he now plays in Detroit, it definitely needs to be changed to a Big Sean song.

Price ended up choosing “Fire” from Big Sean’s “Hall Of Fame” album. For those unfamiliar with who Big Sean is… He is a world famous rapper from right here in Detroit who graduated from Cass Tech High School in 2006.

Some notable and relevant lyrics from Price’s new walk-out song “Fire” include:

“Gotta hustle every second, stacking paper every week. Boy I’m in the field for real, I might run up in some cleats”

“Trying to pass on me, when I’m first place in the Playoffs b***h. I’m even working half days on my day off b***h.”

“Tell em that I need more Fire. Fire. Fire. Fire (repeated). Right now, right now, right now.”

It seems like Price is adapting well to his new city and teammates. He joins Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, who also have Detroit inspired walk-out music. Verlander’s song is “Till I Collapse” by Eminem, and Scherzer’s is “Forgot About Dre” by Eminem.
