Biography

Harri was a standout junior pitcher for NSW, winning the Best Pitcher award at the U17 Boys’ National Softball Championship (2008) and U19 Men’s National Softball Championship (2011).

In 2016 he helped NSW to claim their first open men’s national championship title since 1994 by pitching the win in the final, ending a run of five consecutive ACT titles.

In 2014 he made his debut for the Aussie Steelers at the Trans Tasman Series in NZ, and in 2017, in the absence of Andrew Kirkpatrick and Adam Folkard, was Australia’s best pitcher at the Challenge Cup in NZ.

Harri has spent time playing overseas in North American at the International Softball Congress, winning the Kevin Herlihy Memorial Newcomer of the Year award in 2013.
