Royals Legend Frank White Elected to Public Office in Missouri

In most parts of the country, Tuesday was a really bad night for Democrats. Not so in Jackson County, Missouri where former Kansas City Royals second baseman Frank White was one of seven Democrats elected to the Jackson County Legislature.

This is the 64-year old Missouri native’s first foray into electoral politics. Aside from being a safe Democratic seat, White’s name recognition and the Royals recent good fortune also was of help too.

Unfortunately, White and the Royals are not on speaking terms after the Royals unceremoniously fired him from the broadcast booth in 2011. Although White has attended games in Kauffman Stadium as a fan, he has not returned to the team in any official capacity since. It could certainly explain this new pursuit.

What kind of legislator he will be remains to be seen. But there is no disputing his greatness as a player. Back in January, I argued that White should be inducted into Cooperstown.
