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”.

Bryce Harper gets benched and the NCAA is on it's way to irrelevance.  This week Coach Wolforth and Jill look at the details and have a lot to discuss on these issues.

In the Classroom Segment they talk about conditioning for pitchers and why running long distance is a poor choice.

Anther week down in the MLB season and another starting pitcher down as well, heading for Tommy John surgery.  This time it's Tampa Bay star Matt Moore as the latest casualty.  Sports Illustrated writer Tom Verducci wrote an article where he weighed in on this recent rash of injuries and the possible causes.  On this week's show, Coach Wolforth & Jill take a look at what they think he got right and also where it seems everyone misses the elephant in the room.

Then in the classroom segment, they will discuss the common inclination we all have, which is the desire to have everyone agree with us and the problems that arise from such a perspective.
