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.
