Jim Harbaugh Will Face Rick Leach in a Softball Home Run Derby

Harbaugh being Harbaugh for a good cause.

In the latest episode of Harbaugh being Harbaugh, the Michigan Wolverines coach will face off against fellow former UM quarterback Rick Leach tonight in a softball home run derby for charity.

Here's Harbaugh warming up for the big event:

The seventh annual Michigan Softball Academy begins tonight, 5 p.m. at Alumni Field in Ann Arbor. Harbaugh and Leach, who quarterbacked the Wolverines from 1975-78 before embarking on a 10-year professional baseball career, will face off between 7 and 7:20.

The academy and a social mixer are both sold out, but the home run derby is free and open to all comers. Harbaugh's wife, Sarah Harbaugh, is honorary chair of the event, which so far has raised nearly $150,000 for the American Cancer Society. If you're up for donating, you can do so here.
