Independent Lens

MLB Trade Deadline, Detroit Tigers, T-Rex Documentary, Bryant Nolden, Jason Crutchfield, Claressa Shields, and Tickled Tuesday.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" it was a big day yesterday in baseball. The trade deadline clock ticked down and the Detroit Tigers stood down, doing nothing. Al and engineer Isaac Constans explain why it was the right move for the Tigers to stay in the pen while others made big moves. Also on the show, Al previews "T-Rex: Her Fight for Gold," a PBS special premier on WKAR. Al chats with Bryant Nolden and Jason Crutchfield at Berston Fieldhouse in Flint, MI. They are two members of the gym who are very close to Claressa Shields, a Flint boxer who carried her city to number one. Listen to those two interviews to close out the show.
