Jose Cruz has definitely seen better days. A Major League Baseball player, once at the top of his game, Jose’s life of fame and excess has taken a toll on him physically, spiritually and emotionally. Now after a several knee surgeries, he is out of shape and without a team. His recreational drug use has turned into a full-blown addiction that has him at rock bottom. With his life and career at stake, Jose’s agent promises him a tryout with the New York Yankees if he goes into rehab. Reluctantly, Jose agrees because despite making millions over 14 years playing professional baseball, he is struggling financially. Over-spending, child support and bad investments have left him broke. The only way to get back on his feet is to get clean and start playing baseball again.
