Harrell does not exist. Harrell always tries her best and will get 'em next time. She takes the team out for melted ice cream after each game, win or lose.
It was first determined that Harrell does not exist when, in mid-conversation with her in the dugout, Nagomi Meng turned to smile at Harrell and realized that she doesn't exist. It is posited by some that Harrell never existed, but it's impossible to know anything about something as hypothetical and forbidden as the past.
Harrell has made it clear that, if given the chance, she would sacrifice every single fan in the stadium. One by one.
New York Millenials
The first day of Harrell's move to the New York Millennials was difficult, largely due to the fact she doesn't exist and the Mills hadn't noticed her arrive. Not wanting her to feel left out again, the players now call out for a "Harrell Check" so Harrell can let them know she isn't there.
Although she has softened since joining the Mills, likely from developing a side gig for contractual reasons, Harrell is yet to reconsider the stance that, if given the chance, she would still sacrifice every single fan in the stadium. One by one.
Upon her arrival to Yellowstone, she was offered her a seat at the campfire and a life free from side hustles. Outside of the concrete jungle, she has flourished, settling in to her new life under the blue sky and reportedly becoming slightly more real every day. When asked how she feels in her new environs, she said

Whether she wishes to sacrifice the park's visitors one by one remains to be seen.
Rumor has it that Harrell has been replaced by a nearly indistinguishable entity also known as Harrell, which also doesn't exist. They appear to be linked, with only one not-existing at any given time. When one of them is not existing, it is not clear where the other is, although speculation abounds.
An Alternate Altercation
Harrell was taking to Yellowstone National Ballpark rather well, and although she still wanted to sacrifice every fan in the stadium one by one, the urge was lessening.
Nevertheless, an alternate being also known as Harrell arrived in the stadium one day. Alternate Harrell and Yellowstone Harrell are two connected, mutually exclusive entities. When Yellowstone Harrell does not exist, Alternate Harrell is real, and vice-versa. Alternate Harrell exists most of the time, but not always.
Alternate Harrell came to the park to try to protect everyone from Yellowstone Harrell's homicidal tendencies. Unfortunately, everyone during Season β5 had intensely feral vibes, and Alternate Harrell has started to show signs of succumbing to the feral vibes and becoming less restrained.
With the passing of the Milennials' Wesley Dudley in Season 7, Harrell inherited his prize sourdough starter. In Yellowstone's highly microbial environment, it seems to have picked up some new tricks, but still produces a killer loaf of sourdough rye.
Arriving in Hawai’i under the domain of Our Lady, Harrell made a smooth transition to island life, where she took up a hobby of hunting invasive species, but otherwise was able to unwind to some degree. Much to the surprise of her teammates, Harrell discovered that she was the only one who could understand their captain, Fletcher Yamamoto. Unfortunately since most of the time Harrell’s teammates could not hear her, this made for some very confusing plays from their foul mouthed avian captain.
While waiting for her turn to bat during a series with the Philly Pies, Harrell noticed Ed Woodman, walking in her direction, wearing what appeared to be colorful, floral print. Grumbling under her breath, "I've seen this movie before," she quickly ran over to the Pies dugout, and hopped on the bench. After some brief confusion, the Pies quickly initiated their newest member by teaching her to flip a car (safely, of course), and shared a coconut cream pie recipe after a request for a gift for "someone special". With the initiation complete, Harrell completed her first (and to date, only) at bat for the Pies. Upon her return to the dugout, she was surprised to find Woodman, reportedly complaining that, "I was only gone for 20 minutes guys", "I just like their merch and wanted to try their wooder ice", and "I told Beasley and Mora!"
Hawai Fridays (again)
After her brief holiday to Philly, not much changed for Harrell, though there were rumours of her and Baldwin Breadwinner being seen baking bread together. In season 10 however, she was unexpectedly reunited with an old friend from the Tigers in season one - Nagomi McDaniel. The two of them were happy to catch up, but what struck Harrell was just how much had changed for her old teammate. In comparison it seemed that despite all this time on and all these teams, Harrell wasn’t far from where she started. Rather than bemoan her fate, Harrell took things into her own hands. Specifically she took things out of other people’s hands and into her own hands by intercepting two infusions being aimed at her teammate Jacob Winner and claiming them for herself. Now a five star hitter, pitcher, and baserunner, Harrell was ready to go toe to toe with anyone in the league.
When Harrell was traded to Baltimore she experienced an extremely strange feeling. Harrell was recognized. Not by the authorities, not by the god of the bay, and not even by her old teammate Nagomi McDaniel. The second that Harrell made eye contact with Pedro Davids however, the two of them both remembered a night they had nearly spent in a jail cell after a protest in Puerto Peñasco, but had managed to evade the authorities with good luck, fair winds, and a well timed kick to the back of a police cruiser. And while many people see the two of them as past their prime of starting trouble and getting into fights, Pedro and Harrell saw right through each other, and were ready to find some more trouble to get into, and fights to start.
Harrell and Pedro both eagerly await games against the Hawai’i Fridays both as a chance to play against old teammates, but also as a way to see their respective significant others. Harrell is happy to find some time to spend with Baldwin Breadwinner, and Pedro has an opportunity to exchange letters with Valentine Games in person. Pedro and Harrell also happily take the time to compare how incredible and talented their partners are with each other, which can quickly devolve into a good spirited competition that the rest of the team finds either extremely sweet, or extremely exasperating.
Their only recorded double date ended with the four of them being banned from both from the local mini-glolf course and Olive Garden.
