KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Former Kansas City Royals second baseman Frank White has been chosen to serve as a Jackson County executive for the rest of the year.

The Kansas City Star (bit.ly/1RHjowL) reports that White was chosen for the position Monday. If he decides to run for election and wins this fall, White would then go on to finish the final two years of former county executive Mike Sanders’ term.

Sanders announced late last year that he was resigning for personal reasons only a year into his third, four-year term.

White won eight Gold Glove awards during the 1970s and 1980s at a time when the Royals were among the best teams in baseball.

He later became a commentator on Royals broadcasts and managed the team’s minor league franchise in Wichita.
