Harold Wilson Finney was a Major League Baseball catcher. He played all or part of five seasons in the majors, between 1931 and 1936, for the Pittsburgh Pirates. During 1922, he appeared in six games, exclusively as a pinch runner.
Finney held the record for non-pitchers for most at bats in a season without a hit. In 1936, Finney went 0-for-35, with an on-base percentage of .000 as well. This was the overall record for most at bats with a .000 OBP until 2008, when it was broken by pitcher Jason Bergmann. He did score 3 runs and have 3 RBI in his last major league season. Dodgers's infielder Eugenio Vélez finished the 2011 season hitless in 37 at-bats to break Finney's record.
Finney was the brother of fellow major leaguer Lou Finney.
