Good news for Curt Schilling and his family: he tweeted this yesterday:
As of yesterday I am in remission. Start the 5 year clock!
— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) June 25, 2014
The former Astros/Orioles/Phillies/Diamondbacks/Red Sox pitcher revealed in February that he has cancer, though he’s never said which kind he has. Whatever kind it is, any kind that is in remission is better than a kind that is not.
Schilling won 216 games, was a three-time Cy Young runner up and won three world championships before retiring at the age of 40 in 2007. He’s recently done studio work for ESPN on Baseball Tonight, and he had been slated to join the network’s broadcast booth for Sunday Night Baseball this season before his illness struck. Here’s hoping he’s well enough to be back to work soon.
