Boston mayor: Schilling should stick to sports, not politics

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is suggesting former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling stick with sports instead of politics.

The Democrat made the comment during an interview Friday on Boston Herald Radio.

Schilling said earlier this week that he’s considering running against Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2018.

Walsh credited Schilling with helping the Red Sox win their first World Series in 86 years in 2004, but said he should stick with sports.

Walsh also referenced Schilling’s failed video game enterprise.

In 2010, Schilling moved his video game company 38 Studios from Massachusetts to Rhode Island in exchange for a $75 million state loan guarantee.

The company failed and Rhode Island is suing Schilling.

Schilling responded to Walsh, tweeted out that he tried to build a company, but it didn’t work out.
