Connecticut Sports Talk, May 23

We're live from The Ballpark at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport for the 2016 FCIAC baseball semifinals. But first, Nutmeg Sports opens with Jason Klein, President of Force3 ProGear, who tells Rob Adams and Donald Eng about some of the products that his Derby-based company is working on. They have developed a catchers mask that they hope will be safer for those wearing "the tools of ignorance."

Frank Granito joins Rob for to review baseball highlights and preview tonight's doubleheader. First, Darien plays Norwalk, followed by Trumbull meeting Warde. The first pitch is at 5pm on the HAN Network.

Darien knocked off Danbury, while Greenwich fell to Warde, Norwalk beat Ridgefield, and Trumbull walked off against St. Joseph.

Rob and Frank also review highlights of Saturday's New Canaan/Wilton boys lacrosse quarterfinal game. The Rams will play Ridgefield tomorrow after 5pm, while Darien will take on Staples at 7:30pm. Both of those games will be broadcast live on the HAN Network.

Softball also gets its turn on the show, as Rob, Frank, and Don discuss the 21 strike out effort of Nicole Williams of St. Joseph.

The show finishes with the winners and new nominees for the HAN Network/FCIAC Athlete of the Week.
