Billy Corben's "Broke" has spurred a ton of reaction since its airing on ESPN this week, but in at least one case that attention apparently was undeserved.
Homer Bush, who played in 40 games for the 2002 Marlins during a seven-year big-league career, has taken to Facebook to set the record straight.
Bush, who turns 40 next month, insists he isn't struggling financially, as the documentary suggests. On the contrary, he has transitioned to a new career as a financial advisor.
"No good deed goes unpunished," Bush posted on Facebook Wednesday night. "I was asked to help ESPN 30 for 30 with 'Why Athletes go broke?' Since I transitioned from baseball into the world of Financial Advising, they thought I would have some good insight.
Glad to see Bush speak up. Having spoken to Bush during his time with the Yankees and Marlins, I couldn't grasp how someone so grounded and thoughtful could run his financial life into dire straits.
