The house on Mayfair Avenue doesn't look like much these days: small,
nondescript, in need of some work. But the historic value could someday make
it a landmark, the kind of place worthy of notation on a map, a sign, maybe
even a stop on a tour.
Because it was there that little David Price showed the signs that he might be
a little different -- and a lot special.
"He'd get out there with this little plastic ball and bat, and smack it over
the house, then he'd run through the gate, go get the ball and hit it back
over," his mother, Debbie Price, recalled.
"He was doing that at the age of 3. I'd never seen a child with such good eye-
hand coordination -- just to be able to toss it to himself and hit it. I
remember (oldest son) Jackie, for instance, tossing him a ball at age 6 or 7,
and he couldn't even catch it. Here David was at just 3 years old. It was
amazing to me, and I thought, 'Wow, there's such a difference.' "
