The Diamond Classic is here. On Current Sports with Al Martin, Al breaks down the high school baseball tournament that features the best high school teams from Mid-Michigan with Lansing State Journal lead preps writer Brian Calloway. They talk about which teams are the favorite to win, and also dive into the re-seeding and restructuring of playoff high school sports. Also, Ryan Walker, son of WKAR's Brad Walker and freshman picther for Huntington University, joins the show to talk about his first year pitching and how he's rooting for his former high school (Eaton Rapids) to win the Diamond Classic. Towards the end of the show, Al gives his opinion on the Golden State Warriors and their fifth straight NBA Finals appearance. To finish off, Al gives his thoughts on the confrontation involving Ezekiel Elliott and a security guard that ended up with Elliott getting detained, and gives predictions on how this will impact his future with the Dallas Cowboys.
