About the author (2011)

Frank White enjoyed a solid-gold career with the Kansas City Royals that had enough highs to counter the lows in which the Hall of Fame second baseman and the club he called home for 18 years parted ways in 2012. He became the premier second baseman of his era, winning a then record-tying eight Gold Gloves, earning five All-Star Game berths and hitting cleanup in the 1985 World Series, when the Royals came back from a 3-1 deficit to earn the team s lone world championship in seven games. White retired as a player in 1990 and in 1995, his No. 20 joined George Brett s No. 5 and late manager Dick Howser s No. 10 as the only three numbers in the history of the team to have been retired. That same year he was inducted into the Kansas City Royals Hall of Fame. He joined the Royals front office and later became a popular member of the Royals broadcasting team in 2008, when he replaced the popular Paul Splittorff, who was battling health issues at the time and later lost a battle to cancer. In a move that still angers and mystifies many Royals fans, he was fired as a color commentator in 2012. He and his wife Teresa live in Lee s Summit. White recently signed on as a coach for the Kansas City T-Bones of the Independent League in Kansas City.
