Former Clemson Tiger and current Texas Ranger Eli White had himself a day in Monday night’s matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays. In the first of four against the Rays at Global Life Field in Arlington, Texas, White both robbed a homer and hit a homer of his own in the Rangers 9-5 win over Tampa Bay.

White robbed what looked to be a no-doubt three-run homer for Tampa Bay’s Ji-Man Choi, running all the way back to the warning track and extending over the visitor’s bullpen to snag the 405-foot deep ball to prevent Choi’s fifth home run of the year, keeping the game scoreless in the first.

The outfielder later came up with a deep ball of his own in the second inning. White hit a two-run fly ball to center field for his second home run of the 2022 season.

White made his MLB debut with the Rangers in 2020. Prior to being drafted in the 11th round of the MLB Draft by the Oakland Athletics in 2016, White played for Clemson from 2014-2016, starting two of those years at shortstop. The Easley, South Caroline-native helped the Tigers claim an ACC Championship and an NCAA Regional appearance in 2016.
