VUCommodores.com – Vanderbilt’s Harrison Ray Offers Perspective, Insight and Thanks (March 2020)

Head coach Tim Corbin on Ray: “Harry is the consummate team guy…very connected to his teammates. Versatile, adaptable, relational, contentious and tough. Guys like this…you really miss when they are gone. He has served an important role for the last three years and will again in 2020. He held down the 2nd base position all of last year, but can play many positions on the field. He does everything on the field well. He has a very positive disposition and is a lot of fun to coach. He also became our Omaha Challenge Champion this past year.”
