Former professional baseball player Bill Denehey still recalls the ill-fated slider to Willie Mays, during which he injured his shoulder, that changed the trajectory of his career and life. Like many players past and present, Denehey received a cortisone shot in both this and subsequent instances in order to dull the pain and stay in the game. At 68, Denehey still deals with health issues he attributes to the overuse of cortisone shots during his career - including being blind. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 to hear Denehy's  troubling story.
