A4 Ann Arbor Aerial Assault: Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh discusses how baseball can help QBs develop better arms, coordination

On Saturday, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh relived some of his old baseball days by playing first baseman to quarterbacks' shortstop at the Ann Arbor Aerial Assault QB Camp at the Big House. 

During the first drill, roughly 80 campers lined up along the east sideline with one mission: Get the ball, which was hit from "home"--the northwest corner--to Harbaugh, who was perched on the west sideline as a first baseman. Very few players appeared capable of cleanly fielding a grounder, as very few played baseball. 

The same was true during fly-ball drills, where campers had to catch the ball and relay it to the cut-off man--Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler--in order to receive a point during camp competition. 

For the record, Harbaugh was in great form Saturday, cleanly scooping and snagging--and even jumping toward--everything thrown his way. His arm wasn't bad, either. 

And yes, he was in khakis.
