Aug 12, 2016; Bronx, NY, USA; New York Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez (13) speaks to the media before the game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium.

Retired baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez has reportedly been tapped to host the pilot of a new CNBC show. According to a press release, Back in the Game will feature host A-Rod and will focus on retired professional athletes who “find themselves in financial free-fall.” The show, in the style of other reality-TV fixer-upper programming, will pair those ex-athletes with “money-savvy mentors who can help them get back on their feet.”
