A New York Yankee for all fifteen of his seasons of Major League Baseball career, Roy White provided dependable service over that time.  White was a two-time All-Star who put up decent On Base Percentage and would lead the AL in Walks in 1972.  He would also finish in the top ten in Power/Speed seven times and had 160 Home Runs with 223 Stolen Bases.

White is certainly a forgotten but necessary cog in those two World Series Championships in the late '70s and should be better remembered.
