[edit] Biographical Information

After his playing career ended, pitcher Jesse Haines was a Brooklyn Dodgers coach in 1938.

He hit a home run while pitching a complete game shutout in the 1926 World Series; Bucky Walters is the only other pitcher to do this.

His first baseball card appearance was in the 1921 Exhibit set.

"When I saw how hard a nice old man like Pop took losing a game, I realized why he'd been a consistent winner. I never forgot how much Haines expected of himself and others." Terry Moore.
