San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was in town Monday at the Miami Marlins-Arizona Diamondbacks game, and yes he brought his baseball mitt with him.
This is at least the third ballpark he’s been spotted in with a glove in just over a week.
He was first seen at an Oakland Athletics game with an A’s hat and a black-and-red mitt on June 29.

And then Harbaugh was seen at a San Francisco Giants game last Thursday with a 49ers cap and his glove again, even though he was behind home plate and separated from the field by a net. It was such an odd sight that our Haboob Blog took notice.
Who needs a glove when he's sitting behind a screen? Jim Harbaugh does. pic.twitter.com/6kLDWoK37J

Finally, he brought his glove tour one state over, setting up shop near Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa in the seats in front of a suite. No hat for the former NFL quarterback this time.
Confirmed: Jim Harbaugh does have his glove with him at the #Dbacks game, and he thought he might have a shot at a Parra foul ball just now.

Harbaugh seems to be almost superstitious with his attire. His black sweater and khaki pants on game days are a staple, and he apparently can’t go to a baseball game without bringing a mitt. Who knows if he even cares about catching a foul ball?
At which park will the eccentric coach be spotted next?
