Country singer Ray Price, whose propulsive 1956 hit “Crazy Arms” helped revolutionize the sound of country music in the 1950s, died Monday at his home in Mount Pleasant, Texas, following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 87. His death was announced by family spokesman Bill Mack, a country music disc jockey. Price charted more than 100 hits during a span of nearly 40 years as a regular presence on the country charts from 1952 to 1989, from “Crazy Arms” and “Heartaches by the Number” during his first round of fame in the '50s through deeply felt ballads such as his 1970 Grammy-winning recording of Kris Kristofferson's “For the Good Times.” PHOTOS: Celebs react to the death of Ray Price Price cited country giant Hank Williams as one of his few mentors.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — There was no marine layer in Tropicana Field on Tuesday night, no heavy air to turn would-be home runs into warning-track fly balls. Left-hander David Price didn't need it; he threw his second career shutout, a 119-pitch, five-hit gem with six strikeouts to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to a 5-0 victory over the Angels. Right-hander Ervin Santana could have used it, though a thick fog and gale-force winds blowing in from right field may not have kept two Rays bombs in the park.

This year Blu-ray won the bitterly fought high-definition disc war when rival HD-DVD gave up. To celebrate the victory, which left it with no real rivals in the high-def realm, Blu-ray did what most monopolies do: raise prices. "In the middle of the format wars, you had Sony and Samsung Blu-ray players on special for $299," said Paul Erickson, an analyst at DisplaySearch. "After the war was over, it went to $399." But no more.

Katrina Price, who caught Coach Maura McHugh's eye at a college all-star game during the women's Final Four in March, was the Long Beach StingRays' top pick and the seventh overall in Tuesday's ABL draft. The 5-foot-10, 150-pound guard from Stephen F. Austin brings three-point shooting and tough perimeter defense to Long Beach, McHugh said.

Price's reading of that challenging lyric was the most absorbing moment in his show at the Crazy Horse on Monday, where the 67-year-old Texan conducted an easygoing overview of his career.
