Hauser, after starting for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1911 and 1912, was befallen with a series of personal tragedies when in short succession his father and mother died, two children were burned to death in a fire, and his wife died. The tragedies, which took place over the course of just a few weeks, pushed Hauser to the edge of mental breakdown and essentially wrecked Hauser's career.
After being out of baseball for most of 1913 and all of the 1914 season, Hauser unsuccessfully attempted to come back with the Cardinals in 1915. Failing to land with the Cardinals, Hauser played 23 games for the Chicago Whales of the Federal League, ending his career on September 29, 1915.
