Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will join Toronto Blue Jays pitcher David Price to headline Vanderbilt’s upcoming Hall of Fame Class, according to the AP.
Vanderbilt announced that induction for the 2015-16 class will be set for January.
Price was the top draft pick in 2007 MLB Draft. Five years later, he won his first American League Cy Young Award with Tampa Bay. He went 18-5 with a 2.45 ERA last season and could become one of the highest paid players if he makes the right moves in free agency. The Cubs look to make a strong run at his services but he hasn’t indicated where he’s likely to go yet.
Cutler, the Bears all-time passing touchdown leader, was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year in 2005 as a Commodore. Like Price, Cutler was once a highly coveted player. With his improved play this season, his stock — along with offensive coordinator Adam Gase — is steadily rising.
