A New York Yankee for all fifteen of his seasons of Major League Baseball career, Roy White provided solid service over that time.  White was a two-time All-Star who put up a 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 remembered.  He collected 1,803 Hits, 160 Home Runs, and 233 Stolen Bases in the Bronx.
