SPORTS | Memorable Night at Louisville Bats' Game Sunday

07/21/2017 06:31 PM

Sunday evening will be memorable for fans at the Louisville Bats’ home game against Buffalo.

That is because the game will also be coinciding with the “Salute to the Black Sports” Hall of Fame Game Day, which recognizes sporting icons.

Jerry Ellis, the brother of the late boxing legend Jimmy Ellis, joined Sports Night on Friday.

Ellis spoke with Andrew Chernoff about the event Sunday, his brother’s legacy and what it was like to be a pallbearer at Muhammad Ali’s funeral.
