UK Baseball | Evan White ready to take on new role as team leader

02/08/2017 08:00 PM

Junior first baseman Evan White is expected to have a big season for UK baseball. White led the team in batting average (.376) and doubles (15) last season and was named Second Team All-SEC.

The Ohio native has rare athleticism as a first baseman, making him one of the best defenders at his position in the SEC.

He talked with KSTV’s TJ Beisner about his expectations for the upcoming season and how new head coach Nick Mingione brought change to the program.
