From 1973 to 1990, the name Frank White was synonymous with fundamental baseball. White, the five-time American League All-Star won eight Rawlings Gold Glove Awards (the annual award that Major League Baseball gives to its top defensive players at each position) at second base, and had a career batting average of .255 for the Kansas City Royals. White is one of only three Royals to have his number retired. Since his retirement, White has been an on-field coach for the Boston Red Sox and the Royals. Designed for players at every level, in Good as Gold, White stresses his fundamental approach to baseball in defensive play, hitting, base running and throwing, as well as the physical preparation and mental aspects of the game. White also includes his advice to today's youth about staying in school, avoiding drugs and alcohol, and the importance of setting goals. Good as Gold incorporates a lifetime of observations, teaching techniques and player analysis from one of baseball's all-time greats.
