Former postseason hero Curt Schilling may be forced to sell the famous "bloody sock" to help pay back millions of dollars in loans he guaranteed for his failed video-game company, 38­Studios, according to multiple reports. The garment, worn by Schilling during the 2004 World Series, was listed among the collateral recently pledged to his lenders, the Boston Globe reported, citing a document filed with the Massachusetts secretary of state's office. The bloody sock is part of Red Sox lore, when Schilling overcame an ankle injury to pitch seven innings to win Game 6 of the 2004 American League Championship Series, when Boston came back from three games down to beat the New York Yankees. He threw out that sock, but earned another after pitching the second game of the World Series against the Cardinals. The second sock was kept and lent to National Baseball Hall of Fame, where it remains on display. A spokesman for the Cooperstown museum declined to say whether Schilling had requested the item. 38­Studios filed for bankruptcy in June. The company listed more than $150 million in debts and less than $22 million in assets, almost all of which are expected to go to the state of Rhode Island, which guaranteed a $75 million loan to the company.
