Jim Harbaugh homers, dabs in advance of Michigan Softball Academy

ANN ARBOR — Jim Harbaugh’s first sporting love is football. His second, of course, is baseball.

Not far behind might be softball.

Michigan’s head football coach will participate in a home run derby with former Michigan quarterback Rick Leach tonight as part of the Michigan Softball Academy — coach Carol Hutchins’ annual event to help fund the American Cancer Society.

Apparently, Harbaugh’s ready.

The home run derby between Harbaugh and Leach will begin at 7 p.m. at Alumni Field in Ann Arbor. The academy itself is sold out, but the home run contest is free and open to the public.

As of noon Thursday, 400 participants had combined to raise $123,119.98 for cancer research.

Even if you’re not attending the event, you can donate to the cause here.
