‘Bachelor Canada’ will help former MLB pitcher look for love

Former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Chris Leroux didn’t go down swinging when love threw him a curve. The six-year Major League Baseball veteran got right back in the box.

Leroux will look for love on the next season of “Bachelor Canada.” He is, as you might have already guessed, the titular bachelor….

Prior to being a reality show contestant, Leroux spent six seasons in the majors. The majority of his time came with the Pirates, but also pitched for the Florida Marlins and New York Yankees. In 71 2/3 innings, he compiled a career 6.03 ERA. Leroux’s best season came in 2011, when he posted a 2.88 ERA over 25 innings with Pittsburgh.

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.
