Mitch White '13 Makes Major League Baseball Debut

Posted: September 4, 2020

Mitchell White '13 became the 15th Bellarmine alumnus in the school's history to play Major League Baseball when he appeared in his first career big league game on Aug. 28th. The right-hander pitched one scoreless inning for the Los Angeles Dodgers in relief against the Texas Rangers, recording his first career strikeout in the process.

White was a standout pitcher at Santa Clara University before being drafted in the 2nd round of MLB's draft by the Dodgers in 2016. He spent three years in the minor leagues, posting a 3.97 ERA in 75 games, before getting the call to the big club this year. He is the third Bell to make a Major League roster in 2020, joining Oakland A's outfielder Mark Canha '07 and Washington National first baseman Eric Thames '04.
