T-Bones Hire Frank White

01/26/2012 11:00 AM -

The Kansas City T-Bones are excited to announce that Kansas City legend and five-time all-star Frank White has been added to the coaching staff for the 2012 season.
 
White enjoyed an 18-year playing career with the Kansas City Royals from 1973-90. He appeared in five all-star games in that span and was an eight-time Gold Glove award winner, including six straight from 1977-82. White was selected as ALCS MVP in 1980 and was an integral part of the Royals’ 1985 World Series Championship team. He was elected to the Royals Hall of Fame in 1995 and his National Baseball Hall of Fame status is eligible for review next year.

“I am excited to get involved with the T-Bones organization, and to work with the young kids on their roster,” White said. “Teaching is a passion of mine and I look forward to helping these players become the best that they can be.”

White will join manager Tim Doherty’s staff and will serve in a variety of roles from the bench, and as first base coach. He will also work alongside T-Bones Vice President & General Manager, Chris Browne, who first met White during his years as the Royals bat boy and clubhouse attendant.

“I am thrilled to announce that Frank will be joining the T-Bones,” Browne said. “He will be an asset to Tim, our coaching staff and a great addition to the clubhouse overall. I look forward to seeing #20 in uniform at CommunityAmerica Ballpark and I know our fans will too.”

White will continue a coaching career that began in 1992 when he was named manager of the Boston Red Sox’s Gulf Coast League affiliate. He later became first base coach for the Royals from 1997-2001, and eventually moved on to his most recent coaching stint with the Royals former Double-A affiliate, the Wichita Wranglers, where he served as manager from 2004-06.

“I want to thank Chris for thinking of me and making this possible,” White added. “We have a long history together and I think this is a great way for me to give back to the game of baseball. I would also like to thank the T-Bones’ owners, John and Adam Ehlert, and I look forward to working with Tim to help him reach the team’s goals.”
