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 discuss the role media plays in sports and in our lives.  They look at 6 instances from the past week, 3 inside of baseball and 3 outside of baseball, where the media took a person's comments and created a story out of them.  The message is clear, words mean things and in today's 24/7 cable culture the media is more powerful than ever.

In the classroom segment Coach & Jill are going to discuss the new movie Act of Valor and the many lessons that can be taken from it.

This week Coach Wolforth and Jill have a special treat for "Let's Talk Baseball" listeners.  Coach Wolforh's professional players are all off to Spring Training.  The last one to leave was St. Louis Cardinal's pitcher Cody Springer.  The day before his trip to Florida Cody sat down with Coach & Jill to do an interview for Coach's Pitching Central Inner Circle. 

The content of the interview was so informative that Coach and Jill have decided to share it with everyone.  Have your notepads ready as Cody, who has been a student with Coach Wolforth for over 10 years, hilights the process that has gotten him to professional baseball and what he continues to do on a regular basis.
