Andre’ Newhouse is a former professional outfielder. Newhouse played from 1990 to 1996, for the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox. He debuted his rookie year in the Minor Leagues with the Kansas City Royals in 1990. In1994 after being released by the Royals for a serious knee injury he was picked up by the Chicago White Sox where he would play for 3 more seasons when his previous knee injury resurfaced and ended his MLB career.
Born in Houston, Texas, Newhouse grew up in Houston’s South Park and attended Sterling High School and excelled in baseball and football. As a little leaguer with O.F.A, Newhouse realized his passion was for baseball. The next four years—1986 to 1990—he starred on the varsity team holding the position of shortstop and catcher. Newhouse played with teammates such as Mike Sweeney, Mike Cameron, Lyndon Rusch, and Billy Wagner (played against), along with a host of many other great athletes.
After a professional baseball career, Newhouse utilized his talents to play Major Slow Pitch Softball. This level of softball afforded him the opportunity to continue his dream of being a professional ball player. While traveling the country for over 15 years playing this wonderful sport Newhouse adds to his accolades All Tournament Player, MVP, Homerun Champion, Defensive Player, and many team championships. I guess you could say he was blessed with both worlds of “9” and “12” ball.
