Jim Harbaugh threw out an impressive first pitch at Cubs game

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh brought his signature intensity to his first pitch at Wrigley Field on Wednesday

Jim Harbaugh was in Chicago for Big Ten Media Days this week, and the coach decided to stick around for a few more days and take in some of his other favorite sport while throwing out the first pitch at the Cubs game on Wednesday.

The Michigan coach and former Bears quarterback impressed the crowd with his ceremonial toss as he did when he visited the Tigers last season, although the bar does get raised a little bit when you are wearing baseball cleats.

Harbaugh was not the only star from another sport at the game, as Dwyane Wade made an appearance at Wrigley Field to catch the Cubs take on the White Sox.

The home team was victorious in the interleague rivalry game, beating its crosstown competitors 8–1 thanks to a grand slam from Addison Russell and a two-run homer from Javier Baez.
