Curt Schilling Announces Retirement Via '38 Pitches' Blog Post

Red Sox fans are no doubt reeling after pitcher Curt Schilling announced his retirement via a post on his '38 Pitches' blog. After a 23-season career that yielded four World Series and three World Championship appearances, the ace has decided to step down and enjoy the fruits of his labor.

In the same '38 Pitches' blog post, Curt Schilling waxes nostalgic: "The things I was allowed to experience, the people I was able to call friends, teammates, mentors, coaches and opponents, the travel, all of it, are far more than anything I ever thought possible in my lifetime."
