Locked on MLB: Roy White Book

April 11, 2024


Roy White may not be the biggest star in New York Yankee history. But he was a critical figure connecting the Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris years with the Bronx Zoo years plus the Joe Torre dynasty.

Author Dr. Paul Semendinger, co writer of "Roy White: From Compton to the Bronx", joins the podcast to give this Yankee great his due.

One of my lasting memories of the ORIGINAL original Yankee Stadium (the 1923 to 1973 version of Yankee Stadium) is how Roy White's photo was plastered all over the stadium. They were photos of Roy White everywhere holding and presumably eating a knish, promoting the crunchy square Coney Island knishes they sell at the stadium. We used to always call them "Roy White Knishes" because we always associated Roy White with them with all of those ads and all of that signage all over the old stadium featuring Roy White and those knishes.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
