We've got guests galore! On this episode of Current Sports with Al Martin, Al talks high school football with Jeremy Miller, head coach of the Pewamo-Westphalia Pirates, and how the Pirates are preparing for their first opponent tonight, the Ithaca Yellowjackets. Next, Al is joined by Mitch Lutzke, author of "The Page Fence Giants: A History of Black Baseball's Pioneering Champions," as the two dive into a team in Michigan that was a pioneer of early integration success back in the 1890s. Then James Moore, former MSU fullback, returns to the show for "SWAP Meet," recapping last night's high school football win for the DeWitt Panthers over Grand Rapids Christian.
