In one of those unique moments you only get in Spring Training, former 49ers Head Coach, and current University of Michigan Head Coach, Jim Harbaugh visited Oakland Athletics Spring Training and coached First Base. Harbaugh was in full form waving runners to second with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind and was still out there even in the 6th inning. Harbaugh is a friend of Bob Melvin and was returning the favor for opportunities to visit the sidelines for the several San Francisco 49ers games.
Harbaugh was entertaining as usual and gave a great quote on the A’s to the media afterwards:
“The A’s to me, the way they compete, the team, the different way they think, they are jungle lions. Zoo lions get tired of zebra after a while and want filet mignon. Not jungle lions.”
