The Ball Whisperer

**This is my Round 2 Entry in Nachos Grande's Blogger Bracket Challenge**

You've heard of the Horse Whisperer.

A young Scarlett Johansson and her horse overcome a major trauma with the help of Robert Redford, the Horse Whisperer.

Thankfully, young Scarlett would overcome the trauma and go on to great things.   A couple of great things in fact.  Really amazing, wonderful things.

Next was the Dog Whisperer on the National Geographic Channel.

Cesar Millan helped problem plagued pooches overcome everything from overbarking to stalking Scarlett.

Now, MLB Network presents an all new program, The Ball Whisperer starring Jose Offerman.

Join Jose in the premier episode as he helps a ball overcome it's fear of being rubbed down with mud by umpires.

Here is the before and after picture showing a successful session with Jose.   The first segment ends with the ball soaring out of the stadium after a 'roided up slugger (face blurred out to protect his identity) gets a grooved fastball from a rookie pitcher.  You've never seen a bigger smile on a ball's sweet spot.

The episode ends on a high (no pun intended) note as Jose successfully helps an angst ridden ball who fears being involved in a rundown.

Here we see Jose working with the ball to get it more comfortable being handled by so many people on one play.  Early in this game the ball showed just how effective Jose's therapy was when it was involved in a 5-6-4-1-6-2-5-4-6-1-2 rundown of John Kruk.  Yes, that John Kruk.

Please join MLB Network this Thursday at 7 PM for must see TV, as we premier The Ball Whisperer starring Jose Offerman!
