Former UL Baseball Star Hogan Harris Records First Pro Win
A former member of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns recorded a memorable achievement on the baseball diamond recently.
Left-handed pitcher Hogan Harris, who played for Louisiana for three seasons, from 2016-2018, picked-up a victory last Friday, his first in the professional ranks.
The 22-year old Harris was the inning pitcher in the Vermont Lake Monsters' 5-2 win over the Staten Island Yankees.
Vermont is the Class A (short season) affiliate of the Oakland A's, who drafted Harris in the third round last spring.
Harris threw 5 innings, allowing one run on two hits, while striking out 6 batters.
He was economic as well; tossing 59 pitchers, 38 for strikes.
A prep standout at St. Thomas More, where he helped lead the Cougars to 4A State Championship in 2014 and 2015, Harris went 5-2 for the Cajuns as a junior in 2018, to go along with a 2.62 ERA.
In 58.1 innings pitched, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Harris allowed 52 hits, while striking out 54 batters.
In three seasons at Louisiana, Harris has compiled an overall record of 12-4, including a 2.87 ERA.
