John Louis Hairston (born August 27, 1944) is a former catcher/left fielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago Cubs in the 1969 season. Hairston batted and threw right-handed. He debuted on September 6, 1969, and played his final major league game on October 2, 1969.

Hairston posted a .250 batting average (1-for-4) in three games played.


Hairston comes from the biggest major league baseball family. He is the son of Sammy Hairston, a former Negro Leaguer who later became the first black player in Chicago White Sox history; the brother of Jerry Hairston, Sr., and the uncle of Jerry Hairston, Jr. and Scott Hairston. The five Hairstons that have played in the majors set a record. The two other three-generation MLB families have four members each: the Boone family (Ray, Bob, Bret and Aaron) and the Bell family (Gus, Buddy, David, and Mike). Johnny Hairston was the first second-generation African American player in Major League Baseball
