Christopher Deane Haney (born November 16, 1968 in Baltimore, Maryland) is an American former Major League Baseball left-handed pitcher. He pitched from 1991–2000 and in 2002 for the Montreal Expos, Kansas City Royals, Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, and Boston Red Sox. In 2001, he played in Japan for the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks. After retiring from baseball, he returned to Orange, Virginia, the town where he grew up.

Haney is the son of former catcher Larry Haney. Haney also has a son Jacob Haney who attends Orange County High School in Orange, Va.

In 1999, when Haney pitched for the Cleveland Indians, he gave up Wade Boggs' 3,000th hit, a home run. That October, Haney was left off the Indians' playoff roster. The decision to exclude him was blamed by some for the team's collapse against the Boston Red Sox in the 1999 American League Division Series.[1]

Lives in Barboursville, Va and graduated from Orange County High School in Orange, Va. and went on to pitch at Charlotte.[citation needed]

College career[edit]

Haney pitched for the Charlotte 49ers and was the All-Sun Belt selection in both 1989 and 1990 and remains the program's leader with 20 complete games.[2]
