LAS VEGAS, NV-In all my years of travel and gentleman you meet in this great country, no one in my opinion is nicer than Hall of Fame prospect Frank White. Talk about a true gentleman of the game! Hall of Fame potential without a doubt!

9 Time Gold Glover really should have had 10 and as Harold Reynolds was awarded the last one Frank clearly should have won.

Frank had 2006 hits in his career, batted career .255 Avg on base % of .293 and had a slugging percentage of .383, and an OPS of .676. all in 18 years with one team the Kansas City Royals. What makes this all amazing is that Frank White came from a Royals Academy in which they took great athletes and made them play baseball. Guys who never swung a bat until this academy. Frank was one of the few to make it out into stardom.

Compare these stats to lets say Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith;

OZZIE SMITH .262 AVG, 13 Gold Gloves, .337 OBP, .328 SLG, .665 OPS.

FRANK WHITE .255 AVG, 9 Gold Gloves, .293 OBP, .383 SLG, .676 OPS.

Pretty equal I would say yet one is in the hall and the other is never discussed???

Its a pretty good argument that Frank White is Hall of Fame material and one that we would like to see happen someday for Frank and the Kansas city Royals.
