Ex-Boston Red Sox ace Curt Schilling will be the special guest at a “Breitbart News Patriot Forum” listener event in New York City on Wednesday, April 27.
Schilling, one of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball, has 216 career wins and is a member of the elusive 3,000-strikeout club. He also has three different World Series wins, two of which were with the Boston Red Sox. In 2004, he helped lead the Beantown Bombers back from a three game deficit against the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series (ALCS) by literally pitching on a busted ankle that was bleeding through into his sock. The bloody sock game, as it’s become known, has become sports legend in Boston as it helped the Red Sox come out of the hole against the Yankees—the first time in Major League Baseball history that a team came back in a four-game series from down three to zero and won—then go on to beat the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. It was the first Boston Red Sox World Series victory in 86 years, and broke what had been known as “The Curse of the Great Bambino.” That name comes from the fact that before 2004, the Red Sox hadn’t won a World Series since they traded Babe Ruth to the Yankees in the early 20th century.
Schilling also happens to be politically conservative, and in his later post-pitching career, served as a Monday Night Baseball analyst for ESPN. He would frequently speak out in favor of common sense against extremist Islamists, the Institutional Left, the Democratic Party including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and, most recently, against the transgender bathroom madness sweeping the nation. Schilling’s commentary in line with the vast majority of America—that men should use the men’s room, and women should use the women’s room—ended up leading to ESPN firing him.
In an interview last week with Stephen K. Bannon – Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host of Breitbart News Daily on Sirius XM – Schilling refused to back down under the significant pressure of the social justice warriors demanding he apologize.
“We are honored that Curt Schilling—patriot,competitor, hero—has agreed to do his first long-form interview and speak directly with our Sirius XM Breitbart News audience” Bannon said. “We know it will be ‘must-listen’ radio.”
“Curt Schilling’s recent appearance on Breitbart News Daily opened up a robust conversation and debate with Sirius XM Patriot listeners and sparked headlines nationwide,” said Dave Gorab, Vice President and General Manager, Talk Programming for Sirius XM. “We look forward to Breitbart News and Curt Schilling continuing this discussion.”
