Career highlights and awards

Roy Hilton White (born December 27, 1943 in Los Angeles, California) is a former outfielder in Major League Baseball who played his entire career for the New York Yankees between 1965 and 1979. White, a switch hitter, was named to two All Star teams (1969, 1970). He led the American League in Runs Scored in 1976 and in Walks in 1972. He played on two World Series champions, in 1977 and 1978 and a third AL pennant winner in 1976.

After retiring from the major leagues in 1979, he spent three seasons playing in Japan for the Tokyo Giants. He served as a Yankee coach for three seasons in the mid 1980s before returning to the coaching staff at the start of 2004. He also spent time as the AAA hitting coach for the Oakland A's.

Recently, he established The Roy White Foundation, a charity aimed to help children and young adults in the New York area who would like to attend college, but do not have the financial resources to do so.
