HARRIS TABBED AS LEAGUE’S BATTER OF THE WEEK

Dayton, OH New Jersey Jackals OF David Harris (pictured) was named the Can-Am League’s Batter of The Week, respectively for the week of August 5-11, as selected by Pointstreak, the league’s official statistician.

 

Over the last week, Harris has wielded a sizzling hot bat that has generated a scorching .636 batting average (12-19) with seven runs scored, two doubles, one homer and eight RBIs. During this span, Harris logged three multi-hit games including a 5-5 performance versus the Rockland Boulders with one double and one RBI. He followed this performance by going a combined 6-7 in a doubleheader against the Sussex County Miners with one double, one homer and four RBIs.

 

After beginning the 2019 season with Quintana Roo (Triple-A Mexican League), Harris returned to the Jackals on July 24 and has been on fire ever since. Over 17 games, the 28-year-old Bradenton, Florida native is hitting an astronomical .475 (28-59) with four doubles, two homers, 20 runs batted in and one stolen base. No stranger to Yogi Berra Stadium, Harris authored a career year last season by hitting .331 (114-344) with 16 doubles, two triples, 23 home runs, 68 RBIs and 15 stolen bases. Currently in his sixth season, Harris was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays out of Southern Arkansas University in the 36th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft.
