Curt Schilling Brushes Back Internet Trolls Who Cyberbullied His Daughter

Internet trolls be warned.

Do not mess with former Boston Red Sox pitcher and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling.

To be precise, don’t mess with his daughter.

Last week, Schilling took to Twitter to congratulate his 17-year old daughter Gabby who has been accepted to Salve Regina University where she will pitch for the university’s softball team.

Unfortunately, the response was ugly. Many a “man” took to social media to make vile sexual comments about Gabby Schilling.

These trolls, however, got much more for which they bargained. Papa Schilling sprung into action and began taking names. He tracked down the trolls and let their schools or employers know of their shenanigans and they are now facing the consequences.

Schilling wrote at length about the whole sordid mess on his blog 38 Pitches. Here is a portion of it:

Now understand this.

I’m a Republican

I’m a former Red Sox

I have a nasty habit of talking, a lot, about anything anyone asks me and totally unconcerned about giving you my opinion. You will never question where I stand, right or wrong agree or disagree on anything.

I am completely unafraid to get into a ragging war with anyone. Win or lose I’ll give as good as I get:)

I have zero issues being made fun of. It’s part of living and playing sports your whole life and when you’re built like I am you need to develop a defensive strategy early in life.

So I look at it like this. Democrats, Yankee fans, people that don’t like the sound of my voice, that’s a pretty big group.

Those folks for the most part don’t like me even a little bit.

Democrats for their own reasons, Yankee fans for theirs and the rest of them hate me for who I am or what I say, and that’s not going to change.

The amount of vitriol I’ve heard is not an issue. I am sure I’ll hear more.

But I have to ask, is this even remotely ok? In ANY world? At ANY time?

Of course, it’s not every Dad that has the platform that Schilling does. But this kind of response will surely be of some help other Dads and Moms better protect their children from cyberbullying.

Curt Schilling just threw the trolls a big brushback pitch and knocked them on their ass.
