Former Michigan Wolverines guard Nik Stauskas, who declared for the NBA Draft just last month, will be making his next stop with a program at the professional level. Nope, not a basketball team – a baseball team. Stauskas is set to throw out the first pitch for the Detroit Tigers this upcoming Monday, when they take on the Houston Astros. The team tweeted out a photo of the jersey they’ll be gifting him for the occasion.

Stauskas led the Wolverines to the Elite Eight this past season, a year after the team made it all the way to the national championship game. Stauskas may have been born and raised in Canada, but he’s certainly endeared himself to Michiganders since.
