Sports Brawls, Michigan State Softball, Michigan Softball, Detroit Tigers, Doug Wilson, Mark Fidrych, Detroit Tigers, and Weekend Winners.

Welcoming you back from the weekend, "Current Sports with Al Martin" hits you with a bang. Al and engineer Isaac Constans start the hour describing the biggest sports brawl in quite some time.  Is it the most memorable since the Malice at the Palace? Then, the NCAA softball bracket has been released. Al and Isaac explain why a below-.500 season is still a success for Michigan State and why Michigan could be poised for another Women's College World Series run. After that conversation, a flashback interview with Doug Wilson, author of The Bird: The Life and Legacy of Mark Fidrych, is re-aired, reminiscing on the glory days of the Detroit Tigers. Finally, this Monday's "Weekend Winners" pay tribute to who had the best and worst weekend in sports.
