There's no crying in baseball, but is it acceptable at a wedding? On this episode of "Current Sports with Al Martin," Al poses the question to listeners and reflects on his own experiences at weddings. Phil Mickelson took some heat this weekend at the U.S. Open when he sprinted across a green to hit his ball, even though it was still in motion. Mickelson was assessed a two-stroke penalty, but was it the right call by the officials? The Detroit Tigers completed a sweep against the Chicago White Sox in their most recent series, despite the loss of Miguel Cabrera. Al comments on the state of the team, and the managerial prowess of Ron Gardenhire.
