Love him or hate him for his honest, loudmouth ways, Curt Schilling was a force for the Red Sox during his four years in Boston. The big game starting pitcher is most remembered for his infamous “bloddy sock” in game six of the 2004 ALCS that saw him play like a warrior en route to forcing a game seven and the improbable comeback in the Bronx.
Now Curt Schilling is being honored for his heroic days as a member of the Boston Red Sox by being elected into the Red Sox Hall of Fame. The 2012 class of inductees will be honored before tonight’s game at Fenway Park and is a list that includes Schilling, Ellis Burks Marty Barrett, Joe Dobson, Dutch Leonard, Joe Mooney and John I. Taylor.
The Hall of Fame’s Memorable Moment was deemed the final game of the 1967 season in which the Red Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins 5-3, in what is dubbed as the “impossible dream.”
