Today in White Sox History: December 28

Hey Mr. DJ, I Thought You Said We Had a Deal: Burks begat Jackson for 1994.


1993
As part of an effort to replace Ellis Burks, White Sox GM Ron Schueler inked journeyman outfielder Darrin Jackson to a contract. D.J. would replace Burks just fine with 10 homers, 51 RBIs, seven stolen bases and a .312 average in the shortened 1994 season. He moved into the team’s broadcasting booth years later, first on TV, then radio.
