Biographical Information[edit]

Second baseman Frank White spent all eighteen years of his career with the Kansas City Royals. He holds the franchise record with eight Gold Gloves. After stints as a member of the Boston Red Sox (1994-1996) and Royals (1997-2001) coaching staffs, he served as the manager of the Wichita Wranglers, the Royals double A affiliate. He is currently working in the front office with the Kansas City Royals.

White speaks to students in 2009.

He is the most successful graduate of the Kansas City Royals Baseball Academy - established by team owner Ewing Kauffman and run by Syd Thrift. The purpose of the Academy was to refine the skills of athletically-gifted prospects who had been neglected by other major league teams because they had not played much baseball in high school or college. Like many of the Academy's projects, Frank White had not been drafted; but he was developed into one of the leading second basemen of his generation.

White was a coach for the Kansas City T-Bones in 2012-2016.
