How do you make it to the big leagues? Talent, hard work, and heart. Join Rob Rains, veteran sports writer, as we explore the heart of the game called baseball.  Rob’s stories from Intentional Walk are amazing, and along with music, quotes, great replays and movie clips, we’ll take a look at the spirit and heart that baseball inspires in players and fans.
