If you haven’t caught our podcast yet, it is “Something Worth Catching” hint, hint. In this podcast, Coach Jack Perconte and Coach Sam Zagorac discuss a few more major league items than in the past. Jack and Sam discuss the players they believe will be the comeback players of the year. (We would like to know your opinions, too.) One of those is fairly obvious as we get to see the Chicago teams, White Sox, and Cubs, more than others, but the other selection may surprise, as this player always seems to be awesome.
They also discuss the major league baseball players they enjoy watching the most and what it is about them they like. They give their opinions as to which major league teams may surprise people this year and so far both Jack and Sam seem like they may be on to something. Of course, it is still very early in the season and the standings after only one week can be very deceiving. Over the course of the season, teams will gravitate to their true character and ability level.
They talk about who they feel will win this year’s World Series besides the Chicago Cubs, who are the easy pick, even though no team has repeated since the New York Yankees did it years ago.
Other areas of discussion in this episode of Something Worth Catching include talking about the importance of a compact baseball swing and how the high school ballplayer has changed over the years. If anyone should know this it is former Major leaguer Jack Perconte who has 28 years of coaching experience and Sam Zagorac the owner and head instructor of the Diamond edge academy in Willowbrook IL who has over 20 years of coaching experience.
