Former New York Yankee Roy White joins host Chris Vitali to discuss his Yankee career, playing in Japan with Sadaharu Oh and his new book: From Compton to the Bronx.
“During those down years in the late 1960s until the mid ‘70s, White gave Yankee fans something wonderful to watch, a complete ballplayer, who did his job – even when that job meant hitting fourth behind Mickey Mantle – and then went on to play a key role in the Yankees late ‘70s World Series resurgence.” – Kevin Kernan, The Classiest Yankee
Roy White played his entire MLB career with the Yankees, from 1965-1979. He ranks in the team’s top 25 all-time in almost every major statistical category and believe it or not, batted fourth behind both Mickey Mantle in – in Japan – Sadaharu Oh in his career, despite self admittedly not being a home run hitter.
Today, he shares some incredible stories about his career and more, and his new book From Compton to the Bronx is available everywhere now.
