The Arizona Republic announces that former Diamondback pitcher and a staunch conservative is considering running for Congress in Arizona.
Schilling, who is 52 years old, said that he would run against one of the five Arizona Democrats. President Donald Trump has already endorsed his potential candidacy. Schilling has been supporting Trump throughout his presidency.
Schilling played in 2001 World Series for Diamondbacks. He also helped Red Sox win their first series in 86 years in 2004. He has become more and more prominent after retiring from baseball.
In 2016, he was fired by ESPN following a post on Facebook that seemed offensive over North Carolina’s bathroom law. He also had a different stance in sport by being conservative and supporting Donald Trump.
