Alex Rodriguez to host CNBC reality show featuring cash-strapped former athletes

Alex Rodriguez will host a CNBC reality television show featuring retired athletes who face financial troubles.

CNBC announced Tuesday that the show’s working title is “Back in the Game.” It will be co-produced by another former New York sports star, Michael Strahan…

According to a CNBC release, the pilot episode of “Back in the Game” will pair former athletes “in serious financial distress with money-savvy mentors who can help them get back on their feet.”

Mentor: Don’t plunge millions of your own money and state funds into a video game company.
