Everyone is Welcome at The Ranch!

By Jill E. Wolforth – 


We’ve all had it happen to a us, a moment that occurs, often out of the blue, that just makes us smile. I had one of those moments a few weeks ago during our Extended Stay Summer Development Program. 


For those not familiar with the program, young men travel from all over the country to train at the Texas Baseball Ranch® anywhere from 2-10 weeks.  We’ve had at least 45 athletes each week this summer and several weeks were sold out at 60 guys. 


I am so very proud of our coaching staff including our amazing interns and the incredible job they do in training the young men in our care.  They work extra hard to make sure that each athlete is getting the work he personally needs whether that’s velocity, command, arm health, secondary pitches, strength, mindset or some combination of these areas.


That being said, the staff is expected to do a good job.  It’s why people are here.   They expect the best training and coaching the Ranch has to offer.  It’s why many travel thousands of miles, working out in the Texas Heat for several hours a day and then turn around and do it again the next year.


Yes, the training is fantastic but what many people on the outside don’t see is that the culture is just as special and has a huge impact on the success of the program.  The following picture captured one special moment that epitomized this and the moment that made me smile:



Here you have two young men, 10 years apart in age, working side by side during a morning workout, with the older one mentoring the younger one.  It truly is special.  Second-year intern, Eric LaRue brilliantly summarized it with the caption “Everyone is welcome at The Ranch”.  I couldn’t have said it any better myself.
