Orioles-Blue Jays games in Toronto no longer your typical slugfests

Sober since April, Abby Wambach says she secretly abused alcohol and drugs for years

Abby Wambach plays in her final international soccer game on Dec. Retired soccer star Abby Wambach calls being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence earlier this year “one of the best things that has ever happened to me.” In an interview with the Associated Press ahead of the release of her memoir “Forward,” the former World Cup champion said that incident finally forced her to face a problem she had hidden from the public for years — her abuse of alcohol and prescription pills. Wambach says she’s been sober since the night of her arrest, and that has helped her open up about her issues with alcohol and drugs.
