Words from the Heart

Superintendent Collins pays Jack a visit to deliver some good news. He wants to present Jack with the Commissioner’s Medal for all of his hard work on rounding up the Tolliver gang and rescuing the settlers from the flood. Jack will be expected to give a speech in front of his colleagues when he receives the award.

Elizabeth attempts to bond with Cyrus while coaching her baseball team. She finds out that Cyrus wears a knee brace as a result of falling off a horse, so she offers him an assistant coach position that he reluctantly accepts. Unbeknownst to Cyrus, Elizabeth met his father earlier, where he said that Cyrus no longer needs the brace on his knee. What he really needs is confidence. Elizabeth is sure that this important position on the team will give him the boost he is looking for.

Both Elizabeth and Jack are training their teams and learning each of the players’ strengths and weaknesses. Jack originally puts Cody in as pitcher, but quickly notices another standout player, Anna. She has strong throw, and Jack and offers her the position of pitcher. A disappointed Cody immediately wants to go home, but after he gets a pep talk from Cyrus, he decides to stick around.
