We celebrate the historic Masters win that was Sunday for Hideki Matsuyama, who became the first Japanese player to ever win a Green Jacket. Also, Al sounds-off on COVID-19 in youth sports and the Iron Mountain fan who was booted from the Breslin Center for not putting on his mask over the weekend. 

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, we recap the thrilling event that was The Masters and celebrate the historic victory for Hideki Matsuyama. Al also gives thoughts on one young golfer who has officially arrived. We then dive into the weekend's high school basketball state title games. One fan was actually kicked out of the Breslin Center for not wearing his mask properly. Al opens-up about the critical time here our state when it comes to the battle of COVID-19. We then take you home with Weekend Winners and a nod to Wrestlemania! That, and more!
