The Salem News (Salem, Ohio) 26 Sep 1963

Athletics Sign Ambidextrous Pitcher - The Kansas City Athletics have signed a pitcher who has two chances of making good - one with each arm. James Haley, right of Canton, Ga., is shown signing in Atlanta with Mercer Harris, the Athletics' Georgia scout.

The 185-pounder won 10 games in the East Cobb League this summer - 8 right-handed and 2 left-handed. He struck out 18 batters right-handed last week and four days later struck out six left-handed in a relief stint.
