Happy sunday checking in on another beautiful day with a full slate of games available to us all (except for the Mets/Phillies which has been postponed). Yesterday was an action packed day for the sports world. We had the Kentucky Derby, the NBA Playoffs, the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Golf, MMA, Boxing and of course all those baseball games to choose from. Today is a little easier. And of course for the editor of Diamond Hoggers baseball always wins out. Even in May.
