Christopher Francis Haughey, nicknamed "Bud" (born October 3, 1925), is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who appeared in one game for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1943. At 18 years of age, the 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m), 180 lb (82 kg) rookie was the second-youngest player to appear in a National League game that season. He was born in Astoria, New York

Haughey is one of many ballplayers who only appeared in the major leagues during World War II. His major league debut happened to be on his 18th birthday, and it was the last game of the season. He pitched seven innings of relief against the Cincinnati Reds at Crosley Field, giving up five hits, ten walks, and six runs (three earned) in a 6–1 loss. Johnny Vander Meer was the winning pitcher. His career ended with a 0–1 record and a 3.86 ERA. Five other players made their Major League debut on the same day, October 3, 1943, as Haughey: Norm Brown, Hank Camelli, Cookie Cuccurullo, Gil Hodges, and Tony Ordenana.[1]
