ESPN Just Erased The Footage Of Curt Schilling’s Legendary ‘Bloody Sock’ Game

ESPN edited out footage from Curt Schilling’s legendary “bloody sock” game Sunday night when replaying a 2010 documentary about the Boston Red Sox’s 2004 World Series comeback win.

The move to cut Schilling out of the documentary, entitled “Four Days in October,” happened less than two weeks after the network fired Schilling for objecting to laws that would allow men who identify as transgender to use a women’s restroom.

During game six of the 2004 World Series, Schilling pitched seven innings for the Red Sox, despite suffering from a torn tendon sheath in his right ankle. His ankle began to bleed, noticeably staining his sock, but he continued to pitch and only gave up one run that night.

His performance helped the Red Sox beat the Yankees 4-2 that game, and they ultimately went onto win the World Series for the first time in 86 years.

ESPN has since claimed that a live event scheduled to run just before the documentary ran over time, and the network needed to cut a segment from the film so it would end on time. But Schilling isn’t buying it.

On Sunday, he tweeted about ESPN’s decision to cut him out of the documentary, calling out the network’s decision to erase him from the film.

“This is what happens when you embarrass powerful people,” he tweeted.

Two weeks ago, Schilling was fired from ESPN after he spoke out against transgender bathroom laws. The network is well-known for being friendly towards the transgender agenda. Last year, ESPN awarded Caitlyn Jenner, an Olympic gold medalist formerly known as Bruce Jenner, the Arthur Ashe Courage Award for his decision to “transition” from male to female.
