He began his major league career as a catcher for the Boston Red Sox. His career was resurrected by the Oakland Athletics as an everyday first baseman without power. He is featured in the book Moneyball. He played a key role in the A's 20-game winning streak in the season memorialized in the book (2002), as he hit the walk-off homer that gave the A's win #20.
Injuries to his arm forced Hatteberg from the catcher position where he had a great deal of difficulty throwing out runners.
In 2011-2013, Hatteberg was a Special Assistant to Baseball Operations for the Oakland A's. In 2012, he replaced Ray Fosse for 20 games on A's television broadcasts.
