The story of Sammy Stewart
The Boston Globe
Stewart became unrecognizable to family and friends as a result of the drugs. He ended up homeless and penniless, erasing the estimated $3 million he made as a major league pitcher. Stewart admits to “sleeping under the bridges and passing a 40 [ounce bottle of beer] around with people that just got off the bus.'' Stewart even pawned off his 1983 World Series Championship ring.
