Jerry Hairston Jr. just got a really nice real to become part of the Dodgers broadcasting team. He retired today, ending his 16 year playing career, that involved the orioles, cubs, rangers, reds, Yankees, padres, nationals, brewers, and the dodgers. He finishes his career with a slash line of .257/.324/.368 with 70 home runs and 420 RBI (if you like that kinda stuff). That's a very solid big league player, one that was a key component on many playoff, and one championship team (on the 2009 Yankees).
One could say he's where he belongs now. Instead of being a terrible contributor on another team, he's doing what he's great at, television. He's incredible in front of a camera. I love this move for him, and the dodgers, the team I'd quietly putting together an all star squad to be a part of the new SNLA broadcasting team.
Alanna Rizzo, Nomar, Hairston, Orel, Steiner, and of course Vin Scully. I will be tuning in daily to watch these guys and their great personalities in front of a camera.
