DJ Price, now as an assistant coach for Barry University, will be coming back for his second year with The Collegiate League of the Palm Beaches, this time as a Head Coach. Originally from Bronx, N.Y., he graduated and played baseball for Fordham Preparatory School and Iona College. After college he traveled across the world, playing professionally and coaching in the Greater Brisbane Baseball League in Australia for the Toowoomba Rangers.

Price most recently spent five years as an assistant coach at Lehman College in the Bronx, where he was the outfield/hitting coach and third base coach. In his first year of coaching the Lightning, they led the country in NCAA Division III baseball in home runs per game (1.14). In the summer of 2020, he served as a coach in the Collegiate League of the Palm Beaches with the Palm Beach Snowbirds. He also put together several tournament winning teams while producing hundreds of college-bound student-athletes at the Highlander Training Academy in New York. As the head of baseball/softball training at the HTA, he created many drills and exercises to address speed, agility, and quickness as well as strength and endurance specifically for baseball and softball.

Price has been in and around the strength and conditioning industry for almost 20 years as a master trainer for the National Sports Performance Association and is also a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He is also a certified USA Weightlifting Coach and uses several other modes, including TRX and kettlebell training, to keep his athletes in shape.

When asked about the approaching 2021 Summer and why he had interest in the CLPB Price answered, “My passion for baseball comes out in my coaching…so I am stoked to work with college players with the same passion and drive to improve, learn and experience baseball through my eyes!”
