Let's Talk Baseball
Every week, husband and wife team Ron & Jill Wolforth (www.TexasBaseballRanch.com) talk, debate and argue with each other and the experts about America’s Favorite Pastime. It’s all about baseball – Big Leagues, Youth, on the field and behind the scenes. Is the coach of your kid’s baseball team driving them too hard? Or is Dale Sveum not driving those Cubs hard enough? Hear advice on good nutrition – and about the latest “non-steroid steroid” in circulation. Catch it all here with the Wolforths, America’s “First Family of Baseball”.

This week Coach Wolforth and Jill take a quick look back at 2010, which was called the year of the pitcher.  Coach will share why he believes pitchers dominated and what he thinks we'll see in 2011.

Garrett changes things up a bit bringing you baseball lingo from 1902 and in the classroom segment Coach & Jill will discuss why they believe the the term "overuse" is well, quite frankly overused.
