22 Famous Athletes You Didn’t Know Were Republicans

2. Curt Schilling

The six-time All-Star pitcher won World Series titles with both the Diamondbacks and the Red Sox and perhaps remains best known for his “Bloody Sock Game” victory over the Yankees in game 6 of the 2004 ALCS. Since the end of his playing days, Schilling has been an outspoken conservative, eventually getting fired from his analyst position at ESPN for sharing a politically charged meme on his Facebook page. Schilling now works for Breitbart News, and has said he would like to run for President in 2024 if Donald Trump is re-elected in 2020.
