Current Sports | 5/9/16 | #697


The Kentucky Derby, Nyquist, Detroit Tigers, Justin Verlander, Carol Hutchins, University of Michigan Softball, and Weekend Winners.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" the Detroit Red Wings may have been eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but they weren't out of the news over the weekend. Nyquist, named after the Red Wings' Gustav Nyquist, won The Kentucky Derby over the weekend. While the hometown hero is the sole contender for the Triple Crown, is that dialog premature? Al and engineer Isaac Constans discuss that and try to diagnose the problems with the Detroit Tigers, on a six-game losing streak. Then, the winningest college softball coach, Carol Hutchins, provides the scoop on Michigan softball, her time at Michigan State, and an amazing story about saving a player's life. Finally, the show concludes with some disagreement surrounding Dwyane Wade's personality.
