What did from the introduction of new Tigers Exec. Scott Harris

The Detroit Tigers formally introduced Scott Harris on Tuesday afternoon as the team’s president of baseball operations.

Harris, a 35-year-old forward-thinking executive, joins the Tigers after three seasons with the San Francisco Giants, holding the general manager title, and seven seasons with the Chicago Cubs.

“When it came time to make a decision,” Harris said, “it was just something that was too good to pass on.”

He played a role in the Cubs snapping a 108-year World Series drought in 2016, then helped the Giants to a franchise-record 107 wins in 2021. He has worked for and learned from Farhan Zaidi, Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer.

Now, Harris is in charge of reviving the Tigers, a slow-to-modernize franchise that hasn’t advanced to the postseason since 2014 and hasn’t won the World Series since 1984.
