I knew Curt was known to go online and dabble on the Sons of Sam Horn message boards, but apparently he is a big video game freak as well. He is working with the makers of Everquest II to help fight ALS. They created a Schilling character within the game and if you defeat him Sony will donate cash to the ALS Association. His wife Shonda also serves on the Board of the Philly chapter.
Schilling’s video game character will reside within the online world of EverQuest II (EQII) for three days during the Yankees vs. Red Sox baseball series June 5, 6 and 7, 2006 at Yankee Stadium. During this time, anyone can register for and log into EverQuest II at www.battleals.com to challenge the evil Schilling character, appropriately named "Curt Schilling."
Every time a player defeats the virtual Schilling character, Sony Online Entertainment, creators of EverQuest II, will make a donation of $5 dollars (up to a maximum of $10,000) to the ALS Association, which assists patients with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. After the three-day baseball series, Curt’s character will remain within the game as a high-powered enemy that characters will have to face later in the game. At the launch of the campaign on June 5th, Schilling’s 10-year-old son, Gehrig (named after the legendary Yankee first baseman), will be one of the first to battle his virtual dad in-game.
No word yet on whether the virtual Schilling will have a bloody sock.
