Second baseman Todd Haney played parts of five seasons in the majors while starring at AAA for years, making a very rare four postseason All-Star teams at the highest level of the minors.

After playing on the University of Texas team that reached the 1987 College World Series, Haney was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the 38th round of the 1987 amateur draft and made his pro debut that summer with the Bellingham Mariners. Reaching the AAA level with the Calgary Cannons in 1990, he hit .339 in 108 games for the club and was the 1990 Pacific Coast League All-Star second baseman. Prior to the next season, he was traded to the Detroit Tigers for Dave Richards, but he was released by the club in early April. Picked up by the Montreal Expos, he hit .312 for the Indianapolis Indians and was a member of the 1991 American Association All-Star team.

Following another summer with Indianapolis, Haney earned a September call-up to the majors in 1992 with Montreal, going 3-for-10 in 7 big league games. He played one more year in the Expos chain, hitting .291 for the Ottawa Lynx before becoming a free agent and signing with the Chicago Cubs. He split the next three years between the AAA Iowa Cubs and the majors, hitting .245 over 91 games in the big leagues during that span.

Haney began 1997 back in the Mariners organization but soon moved on to the Houston Astros chain. He was signed by the New York Mets after that season and spent the majority of 1998 with the Norfolk Tides, hitting .345 to lead the 1998 International League.
