Schilling joining ESPN's baseball coverage

Schilling joining ESPN's baseball coverage

Former Major League pitcher Curt Schilling has been hired by ESPN to work as a baseball analyst.

The network announced Saturday that the former hurler, who won World Series titles with the D-backs and Red Sox, will appear on "Baseball Tonight" and ESPN Radio. A blogger for some time on his own 38pitches.com, Schilling will contribute to ESPNBoston.com and ESPN's main Web site.

Schilling, who last pitched in 2007 and announced his retirement on his blog last year, finished his career with a 216-146 record and 3.46 ERA. He won a career-high 21 games in helping the D-backs to the 2001 World Series and was instrumental in the Red Sox winning the title in '04 and '07. A six-time All-Star, he was named the World Series MVP in '01 and finished second in Cy Young Award voting three times.

Schilling, 43, will make his debut Sunday during ESPN's pregame coverage of the opening game of the 2010 Major League season between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees.
