Curt Schilling Net Worth $50 Million

Curt Schilling grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, enrolled in high school Shadow Mountain and at Yavapai Community College in Prescott, Arizona. He led his team to victory in the national tournament of junior colleges in 1985. During the 1986 MLB Draft, he was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the second round (39th overall pick). He signed his first professional contract starting in minor league with the team of Elmira Pioneers (New York-Penn League, level A-) in the same year, then the following season, he joined the Hornets Greensboro (South Atlantic League, Level A). In 1988, after an early season with the Red Sox New Britain (Eastern League, AA level) he was transferred to the Baltimore Orioles. In 1989, he was the starting pitcher for the Rochester Red Wings in International League. These were a modest start to his net worth.

In 1992 he began with the Phillies, and in 1993 he led them to a surprise final victory of the National League facing the Atlanta Braves, who had won the two previous titles. Without obtaining decisions during the six games of the final, he was awarded the best player trophy series with 19 strikeouts taken and an average of 1.69 earned run average. However, the Phillies did not play leading roles during the following seasons, although Schilling was one of the best pitchers in the league. He began to express his dissatisfaction with management of the team, and in 2000 he asked to be transferred and was traded for several players to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The following season, he was credited with 22 victories (the largest number of wins in a season at the time) for only 6 losses. He shared the award for best player of the World Series with Randy Johnson, which the Diamondbacks won. His 2003 season was interrupted by two periods on the disabled list as he underwent an appendectomy and suffered a broken hand while fielding a hit. Regardless, his net worth was rising steadily.

In 2003, the Diamondbacks traded Schilling for four players of the Boston Red Sox; he became the fifth pitcher of the franchise to win at least 20 wins in his first season at the club, and the Red Sox finished second in the Eastern Division of the American League behind the New York Yankees. Later, his career was marked with injuries, and Curt Schilling announced his retirement on the 23rd March 2006. He played his last game in the majors in the regular season with Boston on the 25th September, 2007, and his last play-off game on the 25th October the same year, recording a final victory for the Red Sox in the World Series that the team would win three days later. Having in mind the fact that his career was full of conflicts with players, management and even media, Curt Schilling added huge sums to the outright size of his net worth.

Overall, Curt’s percentage of post-season wins of .846 is a record for major-league pitchers. As a 3,000 strike-out pitcher, his strikeout-to-walk ratio is also the highest – a significant record. He is in the top three for 300-plus strikeout seasons.

Finally, in the personal life of the player, has been married to Shonda Schilling since 1992, with whom he has four children. In 2014, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, which is currently in remission, apparently as a consequence of using ‘smokeless’ tobacco for many years.
