Update: Ty'Relle Harris was re-signed by the Sonoma Stompers after pitching one game for the Lincoln Saltdogs. He re-joins the team in Vallejo on Thursday, Aug. 17.

SONOMA, Calif.– Ty’Relle Harris of the Sonoma Stompers Professional Baseball Club, presented by Virginia Dare Winery, will head to Lincoln, Neb. after signing with the American Association’s Lincoln Saltdogs.

“Harris’ impact on the Sonoma Stompers speaks for itself. He deserves this opportunity and we wish him well,” said Stompers President and General Manager Theo Fightmaster.

As a Stomper, Harris owned a 3-2 record and 2.33 ERA and was lauded for his expertise, experience and willingness to coach his teammates. In addition to striking out 73 in 65.2 pitched, Harris was presented the Chris Matthews Award on Friday for his leadership in the clubhouse and dedication to the Stompers.

“T got here and there was another grown man in the clubhouse, a fierce competitor out on the mound, someone taking everyone from the guy barbecuing hot dogs right now to Kelsie Whitmore to Mike Jackson and making them better too," Fightmaster said during the ceremony.

Harris becomes the third Stomper this season to move up from the Pacific Association after Ryan Richardson and Tyler Garkow left for the Shikoku Island League in Japan and the WildThings of the Frontier League, respectively.
