Feb. 6, 2000 – Revolution select Rusty Pierce in MLS draft, acquire Wolde Harris

Post by

Rusty Pierce played an important part in the New England Revolution’s transformative years, providing a spirited presence on the back line, and becoming a crowd favorite. Pierce brought a passionate approach to the field. I used to try to keep track of practice skirmishes between players, and Pierce was involved in many of them, both with teammates and opposition. Pierce concluded his time with the Revolution fourth on the career all competitions appearances list with 113 in 2004.

Wolde Harris helped spark the Revolution’s playoff run, leading the team with 15 goals. Harris compiled a seven-game scoring streak that tied Raul Diaz Arce’s MLS record in 2000, and is tied with Clint Dempsey for ninth on the all-time Revolution all competitions list with 26 goals.
