Steroids and Human Growth Hormone ]
Section[ Jerry Hairston, Jr. ]
Jerry Hairston, Jr.
Jerry Hairston, Jr. has played in Major League Baseball since 1998, for the
Baltimore Orioles (7 seasons), Chicago Cubs (2 seasons), and Texas Rangers (2 seasons).
Hairston was referred to Radomski by David Segui, his teammate on the Orioles
from 2002 to 2004. Radomski said that he sold human growth hormone to Hairston on two or
three occasions during 2003 and 2004.
Radomski produced one check from Hairston dated June 16, 2003. The check is
included in the Appendix and is shown below.
Radomski said that this check was for one-half of a kit of human growth
hormone. Radomski recalled that Hairston underpaid him by $200. Hairston’s name, with an
address and two telephone numbers, is listed in the address book seized from Radomski’s
residence by federal agents.
In March 2007, Sports Illustrated reported that Hairston’s name was included in
customer records of Applied Pharmacy Services, a compounding pharmacy that has been the
subject of state and federal law enforcement investigations.415 As discussed further below,
according to that report, Hairston received a prescription for human growth hormone from a
doctor who allegedly wrote prescriptions for thousands of online customers she never
examined.416 Hairston spoke to the press after these reports appeared. He said, “It’s disturbing.
. . . I have no idea what this is about. I’m really in the dark. Not one time have I taken steroids
or anything like that. I would never do anything like that to jeopardize my career.”417
In order to provide Hairston with information about these allegations and to give
him an opportunity to respond, I asked him to meet with me; he declined.
