"I couldn't be more grateful for the chance to give viewers an inside look into my career and to share my unfiltered story," Sabathia said. "I struggled for a long time with alcohol addiction and anxiety, which I pretty much hid from everyone I knew. It's my hope we can inspire athletes and non-athletes alike to open up and let their friends, family and teammates know that there is a path through this. You are not alone."
Sabathia, 40, spent 19 years as an MLB player, pitching for Cleveland, the Milwaukee Brewers and New York Yankees. He won a World Series title and American League Cy Young Award and was a six-time All-Star, finishing 251-161 with a 3.74 ERA and 1.26 WHIP.
