Tracy Harris and Bill Murray

In 1978, Murray appeared in two at-bats for the Grays Harbor Loggers Minor League Baseball team, credited with one hit and a lifetime batting average of .500.

That season, with the independent Grays Harbor Loggers, he met actor Bill Murray, who was friends with the team’s owner and would come out to play with them.

Halfway through the season, a camera crew from “Saturday Night Live” joined the Class-A team on the field to film a segment for a skit called “What I Did Last Summer.”

“… I was the oldest (player on the team), and I got to drive Bill Murray to the airport,” said Harris, who went 6-2 that season. “I ended up on the skit for SNL. I told a joke, had a couple lines. It was pretty neat.”



He is a part-owner of the St. Paul Saints independent baseball team and occasionally travels to Saint Paul, Minnesota to watch the team’s games. He also owns part of the Charleston RiverDogs, the Hudson Valley Renegades, and the Brockton Rox. He has invested in a number of other minor league teams in the past, including the Utica Blue Sox, the Fort Myers Miracle, the Salt Lake Sting (APSL), the Catskill Cougars, and the Salt Lake City Trappers. In 2012 he was inducted into the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame for his ownership and investment activities in the league.
