1984 Donruss #86 - Jerry Hairston

On this day in 1952, Jerry Hairston, son of Chicago White Sox catcher Sam Hairston, was born.

Except for a short stint with the Pittsburgh Pirates for part of the 1977 season, Jerry spent his fourteen year MLB career with the White Sox. Beginning in 1973, Hairston played a variety of roles for the Sox until he was purchased by the Pirates on June 13, 1977.

On September 10, 1981, the White Sox purchased Jerry from the Mexican League and he continued his MLB career in Chicago until the 1989 season. In 1988 and 1989, he signed near the player deadline and filled a pinch hitting role.

I haven't had luck in finding a pic of him with the Pirates.
I always liked Jerry.

I've had trouble finding him in a Pirates uniform too.
