Let's Talk Baseball

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”.

On this week's show Coach Wolforth and Jill discuss the reversal of Ryan Braun's 50 game suspension and what it means to the texture of the game itself.  Also, this is the week the last of their Minor League players head out for Spring Training.  They want to give them a ranch send off and let the Let's Talk Baseball audience know who to follow and keep in their prayers.

In the Classroom Segment, they have the final lesson in their series "Lessons to Exceptional Performance".  This week's subject "Doing Extraordinary Things is Simply Doing Ordinary Things Extraordinaryly Well."
