Happy # 77 Roy White


Image result for roy white images
Roy White was born in Los Angeles on this day in 1943.    He played his entire career with the Yankees and earned the name "Mr. Consistent".

Roy broke with New York in 1965 and played in some of the worst Yankee teams ever.   Nevertheless, he was a steady player who played lots of games, good glove in left field and decent hitting:   .271 batting average, a very good .360 on-base-pct, and 1,803 hits in 1,881 games!

Between 1969 and 1973, he walked 439 times making him a perfect # 2 hitter ahead of Thurman Munson, Bobby Murcer and later Lou Piniella.

Roy got to play with the Yankees in the 1976-78 World Series.   He retired after the 1979 season.

I remember Roy White as a really good guy.
