Curt Schilling declares that he is cancer-free

  • David Whitlock

Great news from former major league pitcher and baseball broadcaster Curt Schilling: “I am in remission”.  He tweeted as much to his 88,000+ followers on Twitter (via @gehrig38)

The six-time All-Star pitcher announced that he was battling cancer in February.  He completed radiation therapy in April; the type and extent of his cancer has remained private.  His wife, Shonda, is a cancer survivor as well, and Curt’s support for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) is well known and echoed in his twitter handle, “Gehrig38.”

We at Reading Between the Seams with the Schillings and Curt, who also suffered a heart attack a few years ago, more good news that the cancer never returns.  Battle on!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
