The pitcher can't be Harry.

"The pitcher, catcher, and infielders except Allen, Harry, and Andy, are shorter than Sam. "

Gotta give this riddle more thought Rolling Eyes

no Exister, read more carefully Smile
Allen, Harry and Andy ARE in the group "pitcher, catcher and infielders"

You can understand it as: Out of six of them (pitcher, catcher and infielders), all are shorter then Sam except Allen, Harry and Andy.
