Segments: Swiss corruption scandals, the godfather of extreme wheelchair sports; North Shore lifeguards; Philly's Work to Ride program.
Dusty Baker: 73-year-old Dusty Baker has led an extraordinary baseball life. A two-time MLB All-Star during his playing days, Baker's pursuit of an elusive World Series title as a skipper brought him to Houston in 2020 as the Astros sought to stabilize the franchise after being decimated by a sign-stealing scandal. The move worked as Baker became the oldest manager to win a championship in history as the Astros rolled to victory last fall. Correspondent Bryant Gumbel goes one-on-one with one of the game's most admired figures. Producer: Chapman Downes.
Chris Snow: Nearly four years after being given one year to live, Chris Snow is still the assistant general manager of the Calgary Flames, despite being diagnosed with the same form of familial ALS that killed his father, two uncles, and a cousin. Correspondent Jon Frankel reports. Producer: Stephen Lorenzo.
Strongman Brothers: Tom and Luke Stoltman are the World's Strongest Brothers. Tom, the reigning World's Strongest Man, and Luke, Europe's Strongest Man, stand at 6'8 and 6'4 respectively, and weigh nearly 400 pounds each. What makes these Scotsmen remarkable, besides their extraordinary size and strength, is how the sport of weightlifting both fortified their bond and harnessed Tom's struggles with autism to make him the best in the world. Correspondent Mary Carillo reports. Producer: Nisreen Habbal.
Sitting down with Drew Rosenhaus, sports agent; exploring a girls' soccer program in India; revisiting Valentino Dixon, imprisoned for 27 years for a crime he did not commit, soaring to new heights in the art world with his golf-inspired drawings.
Grass vs. Turf: Following a rash of injuries in recent years, NFL players have repeatedly spoken out about the playing surface used in about half the league's games in place of grass – artificial turf. But amidst all the acrimony and angst at the NFL level, little is being said about the health of high school football players, who play on artificial turf fields across the country. "Real Sports" examines high school football injuries, and whether they are caused by the ground beneath. Correspondent Andrea Kremer reports. Producer: Jake Rosenwasser.
Zion Clark: Zion Clark has overcome odds most of his opponents couldn't imagine. Abandonedat birth after being born without legs due to a rare disorder, Clark moved from foster home to foster home where he says he suffered abuse and neglect which sent him spiraling. He found wrestling in high school, and has spent the last five years training to be a professional MMA fighter, notching a victory in his first fight last year. Correspondent David Scott reports. Producer: Katie Melone.
Stuntpeople: Stunt performers in blockbuster action movies do everything from fly through the air with acrobatic grace to flipping cars at high rates of speed. It's not surprising many were elite athletes in their previous lives, including college gymnasts, black belts in martial arts, or race car drivers. It can be a grueling life full of long hours, danger and broken bones, but for those who hung up their pro athlete dreams for stunt work, most say they have no regrets as they now get to spend their days in show business, turning sport into art. Correspondent Jon Frankel reports. Producer: Jordan Kronick.
