Report: Harbaugh will coach first base for Tigers in spring training game
You can soon add first-base coach to Jim Harbaugh’s resume.
The Detroit Tigers will let Harbaugh coach first base for at least one inning on Wednesday, reports The Detroit News. Harbaugh may also coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the same game, according to the report.
Harbaugh is certainly no stranger to these types of antics. He threw out a first pitch before a Tigers game last year, and last March he coached first base for the Oakland Athletics during a spring game.
Harbuagh’s connection to Detroit is obvious, while his connection to the Pirates is through manager Clint Hurdle, who is a big Wolverines fan.
Whether he coaches for one or both teams, it sounds like Harbuagh will enjoy his spring break.
