He’s a baseball hero. On some days, he wanted to die.

USA Today reports that a recent World Series hero was at times so crippled by depression and anxiety that he thought about dying.

The World Series ring sits just a couple of miles away, in a bank security deposit box, but [he] hasn’t even seen it, let alone worn it, in five years.

The World Series MVP trophy is somewhere in his parents’ basement at their suburban St Louis home, still wrapped in a box, but he hasn’t bothered to look inside.

The shiny black Corvette, presented to him for his heroic performance in that 2011 Fall Classic, sits dusty with a dead battery in an Austin, Texas storage facility, with less than 1,000 miles on the odometer.
