Bill White had a great career as a Major League ballplayer. In 13 seasons as a first baseman (and, occasionally, an outfielder) for the New York -- and later San Francisco -- Giants, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Philadelphia Phillies, he won seven Gold Gloves and made the National League all-star team eight times.
