When the Dodgers selected high school pitcher Greg Harris Jr. in the 17th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft on Saturday, they took a right-hander with some historic baseball bloodlines.
The elder Greg Harris was also a right-handed pitcher during a 15-year career in the Major Leagues from 1981-95. However, he once pitched with both his left and right hands during one inning in a regular-season game on Sept. 28, 1995, with the Montreal Expos.
As for the Dodgers' Draft pick, he went 2-1 with a 1.63 ERA as a senior at Los Alamitos High School, about 25 miles south of Dodger Stadium. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder is committed to Oregon.
