Even though Curt Schilling has been in the news for some lousy reasons as of late, it doesn't diminish the appreciation Red Sox Nation has for his achievements in a Boston uniform.
In four years with the team, after all, Schill was 53-29 with a 3.95 ERA and 574 strikeouts, garnering an All-Star appearance and second-place finish in the Cy Young voting along the way.
More than that, however, Red Sox fans remember him for his contributions in October — most notably the "Bloody Sock" game in Game 6 of the 2004 American League Championship Series in New York. And it's on the strength of all those contributions that Schilling was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame on Friday.
The Boston Globe's Michael Vega reflects on what Schilling's induction likely means to the righty, in the above video from Friday Night Fenway, presented by iParty.
