Richard Allen White was born in Springfield, Ohio on December 23, 1968 where he’s lived his entire life. Rick and his wife Corrie have three children: Alexis (2/25/97), Dakota (8/27/99), and Hunter (8/13/02).
White graduated from Kenton Ridge High School in 1987 and Paducah Community College, where he got a degree in Applied Science.
Lots of people think Rick White resembles David Wells. Not long after Bronson Arroyo was traded to the Reds in during spring training, White appeared on the field without a name on his shirt and caused quite a stir among the people I was sitting near in the stands of Ed Smith stadium. Apparently they thought it might have been a package deal.
