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 discuss the amazing story of pitcher Gil Meche.  If you haven't already heard his story, it's one you don't want to miss.  It is truly refreshing.  They also discuss Albert Puljos' recent contract demand and the three possible scenarios for King Albert's future.  The classroom segment topic is 'Double Vision', what it is and why it's important.
