Bio: Charles was a three-year letter winner at Santa Clarita, California’s Canyon High School. He was a first-team all-Foothill League’s pick and captain in his junior and senior years.  Throughout his career, he was a starting pitcher and a middle infielder.  Charles was chosen as a 2019 Perfect Game/Rawlings Preseason-All American.  He spent his high school summers training with pitching Guru Ron Wolforth at the Texas Baseball Ranch.  Charles pitched 50 innings in his senior season, in which he recorded 62 strikeouts, while only allowing 43 hits and 19 walks.

Harrison was named to the league’s first team and the Cowboys’ most valuable player during his junior season. He posted a 3.56 earned run average, struck out 72 in 63 innings pitched, and hit .322 – 27 hits in 87 at-bats – with 16 runs batted in for the Canyon Country-based school. Opponents hit just .280 against him. Charles had two games during the 2018 campaign in which he struck out 10 hitters – in a 5-4 victory over Golden Valley and a 4-3 loss to Rialto.

“I’m looking forward to playing with the Sweets this summer against great competition,” Harrison said.

Harrison, the son of Beth and Charles Harrison, listed steak, pasta, and pizza as his favorite foods. He dislikes squid and mashed potatoes, and said he can’t do without WiFi.

Since the age of four, his favorite baseball team has been the Boston Red
Sox.  He enjoys the Star Wars and Marvel movies.  Charles is excited to
spend his summer playing with the Sweets and looking forward to becoming a
UCLA Bruin.
