    Werth, a 1997 Chatham Glenwood graduate, won a World Series title in 2008 with the Philadelphia Phillies and retired during the 2018 season while playing in the Seattle Mariners organization.

    Werth called that championship run "a total dopamine dump" and he wanted to recapture the feeling in the winner’s circle, according to the Courier-Journal.

    "(That) chemical reaction in your brain when that goes on, that's a very similar, same type of stuff going on up there when you win a horse race," Werth said. "You can't reproduce it."
