Jim Harbaugh throws out the first pitch at the White Sox vs Cubs game

Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

If you feel Jim Harbaugh is everywhere, you'd be wrong. But he's NEARLY everywhere, fair enough. On Wednesday night Harbaugh took in the Crosstown Classic between the Cubs and White Sox at Wrigley Field. Harbaugh was there to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Before the game he was continuing the trend of surrounding himself with winners; speaking with two time World Series champion, Cubs President Theo Epstein. Epstein won two championships with the Red Sox as their General Manager, breaking an 86 year drought. As this was going on, the organ player at the ballpark was playing a rendition of Michigan's fight song.

When it came time for Harbaugh to throw out the first pitch, he was prepared, as he was warming up for ten minutes with Cubs outfielder Matt Sczur. As Harbaugh took to the mound, he received a huge ovation, and he tipped his cap. Then he went right into his wind up, and delivered. The result should come as no surprise... Harbaugh brought the heat!
