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”.

On this week's show Coach Wolforth and Jill discuss Trevor Bauer's trade from the Arizona Dimaondbacks to the Cleveland Indians.  As is often the case, Coach is going to bring a unique perspective to the trade.

In the Classroom segment, the topic is mechanical disconnection and how through simply processes and deliberate practice, any pitcher can improve fastball command AND mechanical efficiency at the same time.

It's that time of year again, the first of December, when hundreds of coaches make their yearly pilgrimage of sorts to Montgomery, TX and the Texas Baseball Ranch for the annual Ultimate Pitching Coaches Bootcamp.  On this week's show Coach Wolforth and Jill will talk about having hosted this amazing event for the past 12 years and how they've seen it grow from a small, intimate gathering of less than 30 coaches to a powerful 3-Day conference attended by pitching coaches from EVERY level of baseball.  They will give a brief history of the event including several of the presenters, who, at this conference, truly changed the way pitching is viewed and trained.  They'll also briefly discuss this year's event, the presenters and their topics.  It's not only powerful stuff but a lot of fun.

In the classroom segement this week, the topic is "The 80-20 Rule" and what that might mean in training your pitchers or entire team.
