Ron Washington takes team to World Series

Posted on 01 November 2010 by The Florida Star Online

It was a little over a year  ago that Texas Rangers’ manager Ron Washington  tested positive for cocaine  use. Washington owned up  to his personal failure and  made valuable use the  second chance that he was given.

Washington’s laid back demeanor and aggressive coaching style  is well suited to the young and talented players on the team. 

He allows his players to pursue their own playing style and play  according to their strengths. 

Washington’s energy level has caught on with the entire team as  they have become a more motivated and emotional team that plays with a lot of heart which has translated into winning and now to the World Series.
