Tampa Rays pitcher David Price is 6-foot-6, but even he doesn't want to tangle with a man in midstream.

The star was attacked by a man he caught peeing on his car after a charity fundraiser Friday night, according to the St. Petersburg Times. The 26-year-old left was not injured, but the man pushed him and threw a wild punch after the pitcher approached him outside the restaurant, where Price had been serving as a celebrity bartender.

"I was relieved with how it turned out," Price joked later.

Price, 26, followed up his breakthrough 2010 season, in which he won 19 games, with a somewhat disappointing 12-13 season for the Rays. Still, he is considered one of baseball's top young pitchers. His manager, Joe Maddon, was hosting the charity event at Tampa's 717 South restaurant and was no doubt glad to see his star avoid any injury at the hands of the unidentified peeing man.
