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”.

Even though the 2011 season is upon us, this week Coach Wolforth and Jill discuss news and events going on outside the lines.  There's the start of Barry Bond's trial, Roger Clemens' upcoming trial and Jose Conseco's most recent court appearance.  You won't believe this lunacy.

To balance things out, the classroom segment "That's how you do it" focuses on two good role model stories featurning Braves' Rookie Freddy Freeman and the Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett.  Whether you're a coach, parent or player, these two stories will make you say "Wow".
