Curt Schilling Hangs 'Em Up Via Blog

Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is hanging up his once famously bloody spikes and heading out to pasture, an announcement he made via his blog this morning. Schilling played for the past 23 seasons for a number of teams, including the Astros, Phillies, and Diamondbacks, but was most famously the ace of the Red Sox staff for the past five seasons, winning two World Championships with the team, pitching a famous win over the New York Yankees in Game Six of the 2004 ALCS with a surgically repaired tendon that was stapled together and bleeding into his sock, which is now enshrined at the Baseball Hall of Fame.

In his very 2.0 retirement post, Schilling thanks all of the teams he's played with over the years, and talks about how lucky he's been to be able to survive in the business of baseball for that long. He also thanks Jesus and his family, which you likely could have predicted.

Perhaps Schilling will have more time to devote to his MMO, Copernicus, which he has been developing with his game studio, 38 Studios, for the past couple of years, and has repeatedly mentioned that he will release upon his retirement. I think it's mighty cool that Schilling is a nerd in his spare time, and have always thought him a gutty pitcher who should be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Of course, your opinion might be different.

In 2007, X-Play had the opportunity to talk with Curt Schilling about his gaming predilection, and his studio, and we've conveniently included that video for your pleasure. Please enjoy.
