Three-time World Series winner Schilling retires

Curt Schilling, a 42-year-old right-handed pitcher who won World Series titles with Boston Red Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks, announced his retirement on Monday on his internet blog. Schilling signed a one-year deal with Boston after helping them to a 2007 World Series crown but missed the entire 2008 Major League Baseball campaign with a shoulder injury. Schilling was part of the Arizona squad that upset the New York Yankees in 2001, the Diamondbacks going the maximum to capture the best-of-seven championship series. In 2004, Schilling helped Sox snap an 86-year World Series title drought, infamously playing with a foot injury that saw blood seep onto his sock, turning it red during a victory at Boston's fabled Fenway Park. Schilling went 216-146 for his career with a 3.46 earned-run average and 3, 116 strikeouts over 569 games with Sox Philadelphia Phillies, Houston Astros and Baltimore Orioles. 1

Schilling is the founder and chairman of 38 Studios, a startup creating a massively multiplayer online role-playing game code-named Copernicus. Schilling will be speaking at VentureBeat's GamesBeat 09 tomorrow and will be doing a fireside chat with Adam Sessler, co-host of G4TV's X-Play video game cable TV show. 2
