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”.

It seems like the world is ablaze, with the Middle East in huge turmoil, riots around the United States and the Kansas City Royals getting in more fist fights than Friday night hockey in the National Hockey League.  On this week's show, Coaches Ron & Jill Wolforth are going to discuss these baseball altercations and what they mean to the society at large.

In the "Classroom Segment" Coach & Jill takle the topic of "Inconvenience & Uncomfortability" and their relationship to real growth and development.
