Frank White, Jr. Statement About Yordano Ventura

Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. extends sympathy to the family, friends and fans of Yordano Ventura.

On behalf of my wife Teresa and myself, I extend my sincerest sympathy to the friends and family of Yordano Ventura.

One of my fondest memories of attending the White House celebration of the Royal's World Series Championship was Teresa and I having an opportunity to spend time with Yordano.  He could not have been more kind, humble and engaging.

We have all lost a gifted young man who had demonstrated tremendous talent and great promise for his future. He will be missed by me personally, by the fans of Kansas City and his Royals family.
