 Biographical Information
He broke in with the 1966 Baltimore Orioles, who won the 1966 World Series, although he did not appear in the Series. Andy Etchebarren was the starting catcher during Haney's three years with the Orioles, 1966-1968, and in 1966 and 1967 Vic Roznovsky was the other backup catcher. In 1968, when Haney hit .236, Etchebarren hit .233 and the team as a whole hit .225.
The Seattle Pilots picked him in the expansion draft, and he spent not quite half a season as an orginal Seattle Pilot before being traded to the Oakland Athletics. He appeared in games in 1969-1970 and 1972-1976 with the Athletics, but he was also purchased a couple of times by other teams in that period (eventually being sold back to the Athletics each time), and appeared in two games with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1973. The Athletics won their division each year from 1971-1975, but Haney's only appearance in the post-season was in 1974. He finished out his career with the Milwaukee Brewers in 1977-1978.
After his playing career ended, Haney was a Milwaukee Brewers coach for over a decade. He is currently senior special assistant to the general manager of the Brewers. His son, Chris Haney, also played in the major leagues. His brother George Haney was a pitcher in the New York Yankees system 1959-1963.
