William White

A pioneer in youth baseball in Greensboro, Bill White began the city’s Bronco League, Pony League and Colt League programs. White came to Greensboro in 1952 as the Athletic Director for the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department where he served in that capacity until 1957. White served as the manager of the Colt League program from 1965-1980 and coached its all-star teams for 16 years. In 1965, his Greensboro team won the Colt League World Series. White also coached basketball at the Elks Club and YMCA and was a widely-respected high school football, baseball, and basketball official as well as a booking agent for basketball. White’s determination to provide better baseball facilities led to the construction of the baseball park in Jaycee Park which was named “Stoner-White Stadium” after Bill Stoner and Bill White.
