Former ace and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling, who was part of 3 World Series Champions, has announced that he is now battling cancer.
In a statement released via ESPN:
Schilling recently agreed to a multiyear extension with ESPN to be an analyst on Sunday Night Baseball, and there's no word yet on whether he'll be able to continue with that.
Schilling has spent his entire baseball career (and beyond) raising money to support ALS research (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease), and now he'll have to fight a different battle.
Obviously, we hope Curt recovers fully and quickly and beats cancer.
