EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The Evansville Otters have signed Evansville native Mason White ahead of this weekend’s series at Gateway.

White, who grew up in Evansville, attended Evansville Central High School. He began his collegiate career at Southeastern Illinois College in the fall of 2018.

“We are excited to see Mason make the jump to professional baseball,” Otters field manager Andy McCauley said. “He takes good at-bats and makes himself a tough out each plate appearance.”

After a pair of seasons with the Falcons, White transferred to Indiana University Southeast. In his debut season with the Grenadiers, he hit for a .320 average with 65 hits, 13 home runs, 57 RBIs and 15 stolen bags. Things only got better in his senior campaign, where he put together a .430 batting average, with 95 hits, 65 runs scored, 19 home runs, 75 RBIs and 33 walks with just 32 strikeouts.

White has the defensive ability and speed to play anywhere in the outfield, spending most of his senior season in center or right field for the Grenadiers.

The Otters head to Sauget, IL tonight to begin a three-game set with the Gateway Grizzlies. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT and coverage is available on the Otters Digital Network and FloBaseball.
