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”.

As Spring Training begins to ramp up in earnest, Coach Wolforth and The Texas Baseball Ranch are getting a lot of calls from newspapers and magazines.  Exactly what do these reporters and writers want to know?  Since The Ranch is known for velocity creation, most conversations begin and end with velocity.  On this week's show Coach Wolforth and Jill will share with you the latest on these inquiries.

And in the Classroom Segment, with Coach having just finished his last players camp for the winter in Indianapolis, the discussion turns to the most common mistakes that players made in the 15 bootcamps Coach led the last eight months around the country.

On this week's show, Coach Wolforth and Jill discuss how everyone is gearing up for the 2013 baseball season and that one by one their professional pitchers are heading to Arizona and Florida.  This week has been a milestone of sorts for the Wolforth family as Garrett recorded his first high school varsity win as a pitcher and also his first hit, as the high school baseball season is under way in Texas.  Coach Wolforth has one final camp in Indianapolis before he too will be headed to Spring Training where plenty of stories are yet to come.  And you many not know it but if you are a fan of The Texas Baseball Ranch, you're also a fan of the Cleveland Indians and they'll share why.

This week's classroom segment will dive into the question "Are you 'dabbling' or 'pretending' to practice or is your practice 'deep, deliberate and productive'"?  Listeners will have a better idea where they stand after today's discussion.

So much has happended since Coach Wolforth and Jill's last show and this week they bring everyone up to date.  They just returned from Rome and share the details of their eight days in Italy and their time with the Italian Baseball Federation.  It was an amazing trip in many ways and listening to their discussion of climbing to the top of St. Peters as well Coach's interaction with his interpreter is quite entertaining.

This week's classroom segment talks about how to deal with a situation when no one seems to believe in you or think you are capable.  This is a problem everyone faces and Coach and Jill will share some ideas on how to overcome those naysayers.
