Really cool feature here from MLB Network on Mitch Harris’ unique path from the United States Naval Academy to a bullpen job with the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals …

If you didn’t catch it in the intro to that feature, Harris is the first graduate of the Naval Academy to appear in a major league game since 1921. And he’s still on the active roster for St. Louis in a middle relief role.

MLB will run a full slate of day and night games on Monday to commemorate Memorial Day.
