David Price Says Fortnite Not To Blame For Carpal Tunnel

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. The video game Fortnite is huge. Even major league ballplayers are into it. They play it between games, traveling or downtime at the ballpark.

Price says he'll stop playing Fortnite - at least at the ballpark. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
