BOSTON (AP) -If Curt Schilling is indeed finished with the Boston Red Sox, wife Shonda has a message for other baseball wives.
``I tell every wife that Boston is something you have to experience,'' Shonda said Saturday during a press conference attended by the couple to honor those who helped in the New England chapters of ``Curt's Pitch for ALS,'' the charity the couple started when he was with Philadelphia and continued in Arizona and Boston.
Schilling filed for free agency Tuesday, the day the team was honored for winning the World Series with a parade through downtown Boston.
``Nothing amazes me about Boston,'' he said. ``This has been vastly different than anything I've ever experienced before. The relationship with the players is a gift. The last four years have been amazing. They made us part of the family. They wooed us to come here.''
Schilling was traded to the Red Sox from Arizona a few days before Thanksgiving in 2003 and general manager Theo Epstein closed a deal during that weekend, signing the right-hander to a two-year extension that convinced him to waive his no-trade clause.
Now, after the team elected to pass on his $13 million option this past spring, Schilling enters free agency.
``We've prepared the kids that we may be moving again,'' Shonda said.
``I don't have bad memory. I've had bad days, bad games,'' he said. ``Based on the feedback I've gotten the last few days, I'll remember them the way I'm supposed to remember them. I won't take away anything negative from any of this. I think the fans are going to remember it in a way that I'm proud to be a part of.''
