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 & Jill will highlight three baseball topics.  First, there's Mariano Rivera setting the MLB all time saves record at 602.  They also have an update on Trevor Bauer's status and answer the question will he be pulled up from Double A Mobile.  Finally, the post season is almost set.  Coach and Jill comment on the where things stand with playoffs just around the corner.

The classroom segment has an interesting story this week.  Recently, Philadephia was in Houston to play a 3-game series with the Astros.  Coach received a call from one of the Phillies asking to personally work with him while he was in town.  In the classroom segment, Coach and Jill will tell you who that Philly player was, what work they did together and what you can take away from their time together.
