Dick McAuliffe RIP, Detroit Tigers, Brad Ausmus, NBA Playoffs, Oklahoma City Thunder, NBA Lottery, Bob Every, Mid-Michigan High School Softball, MSU Football, and "Tickled Tuesday."

This show is dedicated to Dick McAuliffe, Detroit Tigers legend. Al laments the loss of the past Tiger before beginning the show with the present team. In the 10-8 win over the Minnesota Twins, Brad Ausmus lost his cool and was ejected from the game. Far from another reason why the manager should step down, Al and engineer Isaac Constans actually applaud Ausmus's bravery. Also, the Golden State Warriors lost game one of the Western Conference Finals. What does the loss mean for the NBA landscape? Then, Bob Every, director of the Softball Classic and chairman of the Greater Lansing Area Sports Hall of Fame, joins the show to discuss mid-Michigan softball and current powerhouses. Following that, Michigan State football landed transfer Kevin Williams. Al and Isaac profile the addition and rewind to the funny moments in sports on "Tickled Tuesday."
