10th Anniversary of Curt Schilling's Bloody Sock Game

October history.

Ten years ago today, Curt Schilling was responsible for one of the most memorable Postseason games, in one of the most iconic Postseason series, in baseball history. On October 19, 2004, Schilling gutted his way through an ankle injury to deliver a win to the Red Sox in Game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees, despite blood pooling in his sock. It became the defining moment of an unbelievable series, in which Boston became the first team in MLB history to overcome a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven Postseason series.

Be it on or off the field, Schilling is as gutsy as they come.
