Depression exhibits itself in many ways. For some, it's a feeling of hopelessness. For others, it can manifest itself in aches and pains. But what does it look like for a high-performing athlete? What happens when you reach the height of your sport and that anxiety still creeps in? 

Today we speak with two-time World Series Champion and APAF board member Ben Zobrist about his battle with depression and anxiety throughout his baseball career. 

Ben Zobrist is a former professional baseball player who is a two-time World Series champion and father of three. He is also a strong advocate for mental health and youth sports.
