Greg Harris

Founder, JewishBaseballPlayer.com

Greg grew up with a love for baseball, as well as a passion to be involved in charitable work.  In 2007, Greg wanted to start a foundation of his own, that could give to multiple deserving charities. Thus, in conjunction with Doug Davis, a former MLB pitcher, they started the Doug Davis Foundation, which Greg runs in his spare time.

Greg has run the foundation entirely on a volunteer basis. While still owning his own law firm and running the Doug Davis foundation, Greg started JewishBaseballPlayer.com. He spent three years traveling the country and collecting the signatures of 26 Jewish major league baseball players and several Jewish celebrities on 500 different prints to start his new venture. JewishBaseballPlayer.com has been selling products for a little over one year, and has already raised $120,000 for multiple non-profit organizations across the country.

Greg’s first job growing up was working as a peanut vendor at old Comiskey Park and Wrigley Field for the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs. He used that job to fulfill his love for baseball, and to keep busy until he went to law school. Greg graduated from IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law in 1990, with high honors in the top 10% of his class. He is a practicing lawyer in Chicago who has had his own firm since 1995.
