Kansas City Royals: Frank White

Frank White was a slick fielding second baseman for the Kansas City Royals playing from 1973-1990. His 18 seasons were all in a Royals uniform, a rare feat in the free agent era.

White was a light hitter in his early days, but improved his hitting to the point that he was able to win the Silver Slugger Award in 1986. He had his best offensive season of his career with 22 home runs and 84 RBI. He hit 160 home runs with 886 RBI, and a slash line of .255/.293/.383.

He won the Gold Glove Award eight times, and did it six straight seasons from 1977-1982. He was the ALCS MVP in 1980, and was a five time American League all-star. He was a member of the 1985 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals.
