EPISODE DESCRIPTION
This week, Gino Buccola and Mike Abadir will discuss MLB playoffs with former Major Leaguer and World Series winner, Jerry Hairston, Jr. Jerry is currently one of the TV commentators for the Los Angeles Dodgers pre and post game shows on the home of the Dodgers, SportsNet LA. The Dodgers are favored to win the NL pennant, and one of the favorites to win this year’s World Series, as they have the best record in the Majors. Will the pressure as the top seed get to this year’s club? How will Clayton Kershaw fare this post-season? Jerry will provide key analysis on all those questions, as well as insight into the biggest challenges Manager Dave Roberts will have to contend with.

We will also break down each playoff series with Jerry, in addition to focusing on the NLDS, which will feature the Dodgers hosting the winner of this year’s Wild Card matchup winner. All this and much more when Jerry Hairston, Jr. visits with Mike and Gino on The Mike Abadir Show!

BIO
Jerry Hairston, Jr., who comes from the biggest major league baseball family, is currently a part of the Dodgers broadcast team on SportsNet LA. He played sixteen seasons in MLB (1998-2013), and won a World Series ring with the 2009 New York Yankees. Jerry played for nine MLB clubs, and fielded every position on the field except for pitcher and catcher.

Aside from being a part of three generations of major leaguers, he also holds the unique distinction of being a part of a Dodgers lineup which featured five players who were the sons of major leaguers (along with Tony Gwynn Jr., Ivan De Jesus Jr., Dee Gordon, and Scott Van Slyke) in 2012. It was the first time in MLB history that this occurred, and defying the odds even further was that the entire starting infield was made up of four major league sons.

Since retiring, he’s been a central piece of the studio commentary broadcast before and after Dodger games alongside Nomar Garciaparra, Ned Colletti, and John Hartung on SportsNet LA.
