[edit] Biographical Information

Rondell White had a brother, Floyd White, Jr., who was drafted the year before Rondell but never played in pro ball. Rondell is one of the most underappreciated players of his generation. Despite being a 1st round draft pick, being voted the minor leagues' "most exciting player" and the Expos "Top Prospect" in 1992, collecting over 1,500 hits, being just two home runs shy of 200 for his career, and having a postseason batting average of .400 (6 for 15), White was awarded with only one All-Star Game appearance and was seldom, if ever, referenced by the baseball media. Having his best years with the Montreal Expos when the team played in a media black hole did not help.

He had a cameo in a sketch on Saturday Night Live, on December 13, 1997. He became eligible for election to the Hall of Fame in 2013 but did not receive any votes and was dropped from the ballot.
