Curt Schilling says he’s in remission

AP
Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling walked with his son, Garrett, onto the infield at Fenway Park before a game against the Atlanta Braves in Boston on May 28. The Red Sox honored the 2004 World Series team prior to the game.

There’s not been much good to report about the current crop of Red Sox, but we can crow about retiree Curt Schilling, who tweeted Wednesday that he’s winning his battle with cancer: “As of yesterday I am in remission. Start the 5 year clock!” The former Sox pitcher revealed in February that he has cancer — he’s never said what kind — and has since completed chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The three-time World Series champ has been updating fans periodically on his progress.
