Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:

What Intangibles Go Into Winning Team Sports?: In Intangiball, baseball writer Lonnie Wheeler argues that players who work hard, set good examples and mentor other players can make teams better in ways that are easy to see — but hard to measure.
