Michigan's Jim Harbaugh brings the heat for first pitch at Tigers game

Wednesday July 1st, 2015

Jim Harbaugh's love of baseball is well-documented, as the coach frequently shows up in the stands of MLB games during the off-season.

Michigan football's new leader has previously told reporters he has caught 20 foul balls at baseball games, and as a child he wanted an autograph so badly he peed in his pants.

Harbaugh got a chance to run out on to the diamond on Tuesday night, and he brought his signature intensity and khakis, as he donned a Mark Fidrych jersey and threw out the first pitch at the Detroit Tigers game.

Harbaugh's pitch was just a little high in the zone, but had tons more zip than your average ceremonial first pitch.
