MSU Softball; University of Michigan Softball; Plaxico Burress; Mother's Day; The S.W.A.P. Meet; Reflection Friday. 

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin," Al hits on a topic that hasn't been getting too much attention. MSU softball staked a dramatic comeback in the Big Ten tournament and advanced over Indiana. He looks at the next match up too, which pits no. 2 seed Michigan vs. no. 7 seed Michigan State. Then, Al delivers a powerful message to the young athletes out there--all in the words of football star turned convict, Plaxico Burress. Relive the MSU legend's path to glory and fall to infamy as told in The Players' Tribune. In succession, James Moore, fullback on the Rose Bowl-winning Spartan football team, premieres his second episode of "The S.W.A.P. Meet." James and Al discuss how negativity can fester into trouble for kids. Finally, Al and engineer Isaac Constans try to find NBA MVP candidate James Harden. Plus, don't miss their two tributes to their moms. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
