Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling is confessing he suffered a heart attack a few years ago.

He tells the "Boston Globe" that the incident took place in November 2011 while he was waiting for his wife to finish the New York City Marathon.

Schilling says he didn't think it was serious at the time, but went straight to the hospital after flying back to Boston following the race. He had surgery the next day to insert a stent.

The now 46-year-old says he partly blames stress over his failed 38 Studios video game company that went bankrupt.
