Blue Raider coach Steve Peterson said MTSU baseball lost a family member.

"(Price) was still very close to this program and he stopped by all the time," Peterson said. "I feel very sad for his family, his wife and children. And as word of this news spreads, his teammates are going to mourn Chris. He was a great guy and a tremendous ball player, and this is just tragic news."

Price, a Lebanon native, was an MTSU outfielder from 1991-94. His 34 home runs ranks eighth all-time at MTSU, and his 135 RBIs ranks 12th. Price was an All-Ohio Valley Conference selection in 1992, and he played in two NCAA postseasons (1991 regional, 1994 play-in series). He played professionally in the Kansas City Royals organization.
