Haughey pitched in one game for the Brooklyn Dodgers on October 3, 1943. He pitched in relief of Whit Wyatt against the Cincinnati Reds in the Dodgers’ last game of the season, which also happened to be Haughey’s 18th birthday. In seven innings of work he allowed five hits and six runs (three earned). Haughey served in the military for the next two seasons and did not return to professional baseball until 1946. He stayed in the minor leagues until 1950.

At almost three whole pages, Haughey’s response is obviously fantastic. Unfortunately, I was unable to find links to any of the books he mentioned. Perhaps they are out of print. He also sent this picture of him from his days at Fort Riley. He is currently one of the oldest-living players.
