*- Though Hairston patriarch Sam Hairston only played four games in the Major Leagues, he played parts of four seasons in the Negro Leagues in the late 1940s. Per the stats on baseball-reference, he never homered, but it’s worth noting that across the four seasons, his teammates on the Indianapolis Clowns combined for only three homers. Presumably that’s either due to some absurd ballpark or an incomplete record of stats. Also, the first two Hairstons to play in the Majors — Sam and John — were both catchers. None of Jerry Sr., Jerry Jr. or Scott has spent an inning behind the plate in the Majors or Minors.
