Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is selling furniture, exercise equipment and other items from his Massachusetts home. An estate sale company is selling the items from Schilling’s seven-bedroom, 8,000-square-foot Medfield home on Saturday. Schilling’s home is also on the market.
Among the items listed on the Consignworks Inc. website are sofas, porch rockers, a baby grand piano, a punching bag, a Hummer golf cart, artificial plants, a baseball glove chair, clothing, Candlesticks and vintage Coca-Cola vending machine.
Schilling is being sued by Rhode Island’s economic development agency over the collapse of his video game company, 38 Studios. The agency approved a $75 million loan guarantee for the company, which later went bankrupt. He has said he lost all his baseball earnings in the company.
The company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on June 7, weeks after it laid off all of its employees, who were owed millions of dollars in back wages and whom Schilling said had no warning about the company’s financial nightmare. The company reported that it owed more than $150 million and had less than $22 million in assets.
Schilling said an investor promised to bail out 38 Studios with $15-20 million, but the state of Rhode Island refused to grant the company $6 million in tax credits and to renegotiate a loan guarantee so the investor would be repaid first.
Citizens Bank sued Schilling for $2.4 million in loans to 38 Studios that it claims the former pitcher personally guaranteed. Schilling, who earned more than $114 million in his career is now broke.
