Schilling honored by Sox Hall call
Former Red Sox right-hander Curt Schilling, who will be on the 2013 ballot for the Baseball Hall of Fame, will be inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame first.
Schilling will be one of several new members to be inducted into the Sox Hall on Aug. 3, the day of a home game vs. the Twins.
“For an organization with this much rich history, and so many hall of fame caliber players and people, it’s most certainly an honor,” wrote Schilling in an email. “For what it’s worth, I am being inducted with the guy who got the first ML hit off me, Marty Barrett, and the first ML HR I ever gave up, Ellis Burks.”
