White Officially Retires From Baseball

Pat White has made it official–his brief professional baseball career is over.

As reported here on wvmetronews.com back on Feb. 26, White has decided to end his professional baseball career, making it official this week by retiring.

The 26-year-old White signed a minor league contract with the Royals after being released by the Miami Dolphins last September. Kansas City then sent the outfielder to the Fall Instructional League.

The Royals said Wednesday that White did not report to spring training. Royal’s Director of Minor League Operations Scott Sharp informed MetroNews back in February that White was completely done with baseball.

"His agent informed us, however, that he has decided to no longer pursue baseball," said Sharp through an email.

Sharp also informed MetroNews that White left the Royals back at the beginning of January.

White led West Virginia to four consecutive bowl victories and rushed for 5,576 yards in his Mountaineer career.
