Fred Haney
Birth: Apr. 25, 1898

Death: Nov. 9, 1977

Major League Baseball Player, Manager, Team Executive. The 5-foot-6 third baseman had a career .275 batting average from 1922 to 1929 with Detroit, the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals. He was manager of the woeful St. Louis Browns when they finished last with a 43-111 record in 1939. They improved to 67-87 and a sixth-place finish in 1940, but Haney was fired with the club 15-29 the following year. He managed the hapless Pittsburgh Pirates to three straight last-place finishes in 1953 (50-104), 1954 (53-101) and 1955 (60-94). He got his break in 1956 when he replaced Charlie Grimm as manager of the Milwaukee Braves when they were 24-22 and in fifth place. The Braves came within a whisker of winning the pennant as they close within one game of the Brooklyn Dodgers. With such stars as Warren Spahn, Eddie Mathews, Hank Aaron, Red Schoendienst, Lew Burdette and Bob Buhl, the Braves won the 1957 pennant with a 92-62 record and edged the New York Yankees four games to three in the World Series. The Braves repeated as NL champs the next year, but the Yankees got revenge by winning the World Series in seven games. Haney's team slipped to 86-70 and second place the following year. When the Los Angeles Angels' expansion team was created in 1960, he was named general manager, a post he held through 1967. He then served as a consultant to the Angels until his death. (bio by: Ron Coons)
