U-M football coach Jim Harbaugh lends a hand at an MLB spring training game


Not to be out done by his new rival in Columbus, Michigan’s new-hire football coach Jim Harbaugh stopped by the Oakland Athletic’s spring training facility in Mesa, Arizona on Saturday.

Harbaugh taded in the khaki’s and headset for stirrup socks and a baseball cap and coached first base for the Athletics in Friday’s spring training game against the Los Angeles Angels.
