Baseball Central LA's Allstar of the Month
for March is Ian White, a 13-year-old Larchmont
Charter Middle School
student and BC Central
regular, who boasts an enviable list of
accomplishments both on and off the field.

Since discovering Baseball Central in 2008, White has been a weekly fixture
at the facility taking pitching and hitting lessons several times a week. 

"It takes continuous hard work to improve my game and reach my goals as a baseball player," White says, adding he applies the same 'hard work' ethic to his studies.

Academically, White has maintained an impressive 4.0 GPA in Grades 7 and 8, and he's been named to the Dean’s List since Grade 6.  He was recently accepted to Notre Dame High School, where he aims to continue his academic success and play baseball ... looking to a possible career in the sport. White is a counselor in training at Super Duper Arts Camp and enjoys working with the incoming campers, helping them with their day-to-day needs. And the teen is even active around the community, volunteering with the Big Sunday organization. 

“I love volunteering with Big Sunday because you never know what you’ll do next," White says. "You could do anything from repainting a school building to serving food to the homeless."

On the field, White has been playing baseball since he was five and doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon.  He currently plays ball with the LA Cavemen and Beverly Hills Little League Juniors.

“The coaches have really helped me understand the many aspects of the game,” White says of his three-year stint with the Cavemen, where his skills have flourished.

In 2012, White earned a spot on the LA Storm and played in the Cooperstown Dreams Park Tournament.  The squad finished 59th out of 104 teams with a 4-4 record. White's takeaway says it all: "I loved the experience of being close to my team and learning the history of the game I love."
