Tonight, Coach Jim Harbaugh swapped his Michigan swag for Cubs attire.

The crosstown rivalry game between the Chicago Cubs and White Sox tonight was kicked off by none other than Harbaugh himself.

Harbaugh is no stranger to throwing off the mound, as he threw out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game last year. Tonight, decked out in a Cubs jersey, he lifted his hat to the cheering crowd in thanks before taking his arms above his head in preparation for his throw.

While it was way too high to be a strike, the coach’s pitch was still an impressive attempt!
