Shea Harris Memorial Project

Shea Harris was a beloved member of the 2006 and 2007 Runnin’ Bulldogs Baseball teams. A native of Sewell, NJ, Harris was the Runnin' Bulldogs’ top defensive catcher during his two years at GWU. He went on to travel the country for seven years playing independent professional baseball with the Bridgeport, CT Bluefish and the Camden Riversharks, catching the only no-hitter in franchise history. His lifetime passion was playing and coaching baseball.


Tragically, Harris passed away in early 2020 at the young age of 35. In loving memory of Shea, the Runnin’ Bulldogs Baseball coaching staff is partnering with former teammates, friends and family to honor his legacy through the Shea Harris Memorial Project.


The home bullpen will be renovated to incorporate a new Plyo wall, equipment, storage space and—most importantly—a memorial space for Harris. Known as a player with a defensive calling card who embraced the grind, the Runnin’ Bulldogs bullpen will be transformed by the project into a true development area for pitchers and catchers. It will increase practice efficiency and give players the tools to develop at a high level for maximum growth. This project will also enhance the Bulldogs’ ability to recruit high level student-athletes.


Join us as we honor the legacy of Shea Harris and his love for the sport of baseball. Make your gift to the Shea Harris Memorial Project today.
