NEW YORK (AP) — Jim Harbaugh is in a New York sports state of mind this weekend.
Michigan’s football coach visited Yankee Stadium for the first time Friday, joined by his father and 6-year-old son to watch the Bronx Bombers take on the Tampa Bay Rays with first place in the AL East on the line.
After that, the three generations of Harbaugh boys are headed out to Long Island on Saturday to catch some major golf at the PGA Championship.
Shaking hands and posing for photos on the field during batting practice, Harbaugh wore a Yankees cap, a Michigan sweater vest and — of course — a crisp pair of khakis. He says he and his father had never been to Yankee Stadium before and it’s a “bucket list” trip for them.
Harbaugh, a lifelong baseball fan, grew up rooting for the Detroit Tigers while his father was an assistant coach under Bo Schembechler at Michigan.
