GAINcast Episode 169: The Baseball Ranch (with Ron Wolforth)

Baseball has become a faster and more athletic game recently, in large part due to advances in training. Ron Wolforth set up the Texas Baseball Ranch 16 years ago and has been pumping out elite pitchers ever since. The key isn’t in their program, but in the process that helps assess and find the performance pathway for each athlete. On this week’s GAINcast he joins us to discuss his approach to player assessment, training, and specific methodologies.
