Harris, who was born in Minnesota, played for the Minneapolis Millers from 1928-1937. That was a career in itself, but in 1938, at age 37, he began a stint in the Pacific Coast League which lasted from 1938-1945.

In the majors, he had his most at-bats for the Chicago White Sox in 1926 under player-manager Eddie Collins. That year, Spencer was the most-frequently-used backup on the team. He was the same age as teammate Ted Lyons.
