From executive producer Michael Strahan, "Back in the Game" premieres Tuesday, March 13 at 10PM ET/PT. It's a story we hear all too often. A pro athlete heads into retirement and suddenly ends up in financial free-fall. With no more games to play or big paychecks to cash, the future can often look bleak to those athletes struggling to adjust and adapt. "Back in the Game," pairs major league baseball legend and successful businessman Alex Rodriguez with Joe Smith, a former NBA #1 pick whose lost most of the 60 million dollars he made in his long career.
