In 1939, Chuck Hawley joined Durham in the Piedmont League and was voted the league All Star Pitcher, winning 11 consecutive games and securing a 17-5 record. From there, it was Class AA ball and in 1942, he was instrumental to Little Rock winning the Southern Association pennant batting .300.

He then went on to play for Albany in the Eastern League as one of the “Big Three” and won 53 games over a three year period and won three of four games in the Governor’s Cup Playoff. In the Spring of 1947 the Illinois State League was formed and Chuck Hawley was asked to manage the Centralia Cubs and later finished his managing career with Class B ball in the Big State League at Texarkana.
