Jersey Masters' Harrison Dies After WMC

May 1, 2014

Oscar Harrison, a member of the Jersey Masters, died on Nov. 18, 2013, just six weeks after playing 12 games at the World Championships in Las Vegas.

Although he was having some discomfort with his legs, he managed to garner his teamís MVP award with an .837 batting average and 39 RBIs, thus helping them to a 10-2 record and the runner-up spot in the 65AAA division.

It was after he arrived home from Las Vegas that Oscar learned that his tired legs were the result of blood clots in both legs.

While being treated for that in the hospital, further tests revealed malignant tumors were evident as well.

Not only was Oscar an outstanding ball player, but he was an extraordinary individual. He always spoke of family, friends, teammates and even the opposing players with respect, caring and genuine love.

He was the ultimate teammate and heíll be dearly missed by the Masters and other teams in Union and Morris counties in New Jersey.
