Broadcaster Price to miss rest of road trip
By Jason Beck / | 04/15/12 2:30 PM ET

CHICAGO -- Tigers radio broadcaster Jim Price missed Sunday's series finale and will miss the rest of this road trip, with what the team called general health concerns.

Price's broadcast partner, Dan Dickerson, said Sunday morning that Price seemed to have caught the same virus that has been going through the Tigers' clubhouse over the last week or so.

"He was wiped out," Dickerson said. "He wanted to do [the game]. He did the manager's show and then he went up [to the booth] and he was wiped out."

Price will travel back to Detroit and rest. He'll rejoin the Tigers back home later in the week.

The 70-year-old Price, a fixture on Tigers broadcasts between radio and television for two decades, underwent cancer treatments over the offseason, including oral chemotherapy. He lost about 40 pounds, he said in Spring Training, but felt good enough to be a part of Spring Training broadcasts on the Tigers' radio network.

This is the Tigers' first road trip of the season.

"You have to give him all the credit in the world," Dickerson said. "He's been doing this all along, never complained. He's been incredible to be in the booth every day with what he's been going through."

Former Tigers pitcher Dan Petry will join the team Monday in Kansas City and work all three games there with Dickerson.
