Where Was Mitch White Born?

White is partly Korean; in 1969, his grandparents, mother Hailey, and aunt Juju came to the United States from South Korea. They moved to the Bay Area, but as the family built roots in the new nation, his grandpa became a die-hard Dodgers fan.

Spencer White, White’s older brother, played lacrosse for the UC San Diego Tritons. Juju Chang, an ABC journalist, is White’s nephew.
