April is always a huge month for sports and this month is no different. We will see a champion crowned in college basketball as the Final Four makes way for the championship game. Duke is definitely going to be a favorite in this tournament, but so much on that depends on the health of Zion Williamson. Here’s hoping for a big showing from him before going first overall in the draft.
We’ll also see the first games of the 2019 MLB season as well as the beginning of the playoffs in the NHL and NBA.
This month also features one of professional golf’s biggest events as The Masters comes our way. Last year saw an upset as Patrick Reed beat the field to take down the green jacket for his first time. This event always brings out golf’s best.
There is simply too much to go over here. Just about every sport you could possibly follow has something big going on this month. Keep reading for our full sports calendar for April 2019.
