A New Life At Home Plate

Robin Wadsworth has always had baseball on her mind. At 12, she became a star pitcher - on a boys team. After graduating college, she felt the call to the baseball diamond again, and worked on a minor league team before she was lured away by the call of big business.

Recently, Robin returned to baseball as the CEO of a small collegiate team. She thought she was building on a winning formula, but soon hit economic problems and decided to move the team to another state. That taught her more than she'd ever known about the role of baseball in American communities. She talks with Dick about pulling up roots and setting them down again and in the process, re-learning the glory of the game.
