Drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 12th round of the 1985 Major League Baseball draft, Clark made his Major League Baseball debut with the Padres on September 19, 1988, and appeared in his final game on July 17, 1995. Jerald's brother, Phil Clark, also played in the majors.
In 1992, as a member of the Padres, Clark accomplished the rare feat of stealing home. Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Mike Scioscia and manager Tommy Lasorda went to the pitcher's mound to discuss strategy. In the meantime, Clark alertly realized they did not call time and sprinted home. This turned out to be a keen play by Clark and an embarrassing moment to the Dodgers.
