Jerry White

1981 Topps

White spent 11 seasons playing in the big leagues. He broke in with the Montreal Expos in 1974 and finished his run with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1986. White spent all the years in between playing for Montreal with the exception of 1978, which he spent with the Chicago Cubs. In 646 games White hit .253 with 21 home runs. He twice crossed the 100-game threshold. The first time came in 1976 when he played in 114 games for the Expos. The second time came in 1980 when he played in 110 games for Montreal. He also had his best year at the plate, hitting .262 with seven home runs and 23 RBIs (both career highs).


White’s home run off San Francisco Giant Vida Blue came on June 17, 1980. It was a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning and proved to be the winning run for Montreal in a 2-1 victory.

From 1999-2012 White was the first base coach for the Minnesota Twins.
