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 talk about the "Wussification" of America.  It's Coach Wolforth's term and probably won't be found in Webster's dictionary but they'll discuss what they mean by it and give examples both inside and outside of sports with Coach's not so restrained opinion on the topic.  Also this week, their in house hitting expert, Coach Marty Rubinoff, is back to break down and give some thoughts on Derek Jeter's new swing.  For those looking for some discussion on hitting, this will be right up your alley.

The classroom segment is titled "Why are you watching me, watching you?"  This is both a humorous and instructive segment that you don't want to miss.

This week Coach Wolforth and Jill share a real baseball feel good story. They're often hard to come by but this one is truly special and worth passing on.  They also bring you a story that Coach Wolforth said "This breaks my heart" when he first read it.  Listen to their discussion about this far too common occurrence that takes place with young professional pitchers.

The classroom segment is titled "The Autocrat & The Spoiled Brat".  You're sure to find the segment interesting.

This week Coach Wolforth and Jill have a little fun with Christina Agulera's and A-Rod's recent Superbowl performances along with others.  On the baseball side of things, they discuss two stars and two showdowns and how in the next several days these stars could really change the landscape of the 2011 MLB season.

During the classroom segment this week, Coach & Jill talk about how fickle fans, teammates and coaches can be and how to avoid getting sucked into what they refer to as the "Fickle Vortex".
