Summary

One of only four modern major league pitchers to strike out more than 300 batters in a year for two different teams, Curt Schilling delivered on a famous promise to help bring a world championship to the Boston Red Sox in 2004. Pitching on a mangled and bloody ankle, he fought through the pain to win crucial games in that postseason against the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals. In 2001, he also helped lead the then four-year-old Arizona Diamondbacks to the team’s one-and-only world championship. Off the mound, this father of four is an outspoken political voice, a dynamic business owner, and a generous volunteer of his time and money, benefiting charitable causes such as ALS and melanoma research, among others. In Curt Schilling, find out how this right-hander delivered success on and off the field.
