Roy White patrolled left-field for the Yankees for 15 seasons.  He played in 1,881 major league games and all of them with the Yankees.  His career spanned from 1965- 1979.  He played three more seasons in Japan following the 1979 campaign.

Over his 15 years in the big leagues White batted .271 and had 1,803 hits.  He hit 160 home runs during that span and drove in 758 runs for the Bronx Bombers.  He also led the Yankees in stolen bases six times and walks five times.

Following his playing career White spent three seasons as a coach with New York and served in other capacities with the club including front office duties and scouting.  During his playing career he was named an all-star two times and was a member of two World Series Championship teams.
