Haggerty worked hard at developing his skills as a player and enjoyed his greatest success when he was in his late twenties and early thirties. He spent his early years in pro basketball on various teams in his home state, Massachusetts. In 1904-05, he enjoyed a standout season with Haverhill in the New England Basketball League which attracted the attention of Lew Wachter. Over the next three seasons, Haggerty played on powerful independent teams in Troy and Gloversville alongside Lew and Ed Wachter. In 1908, Haggerty jumped to the Central Basketball League where he played for three seasons with Johnstown. Haggerty spent the final years of his career in the New York State League.
