Former Phillie Lenny Dykstra has been all over the news lately, after the self made stock expert fell on hard times. After reportedly making millions of dollars trading stocks, Dykstra began a venture, a magazine called The Players Club, that was designed to help athletes and former athletes spend, invest and manage their wealth. Last year, Dykstra began being hit with many law suits from people, including some who had worked for the magazine, that charged they were owed money from Dykstra. Dykstra recently filed for bankruptcy protection. Below is a video that shows the drastic change in Dykstra's lifestyle in just one year.
