A week after he was fired as an analyst from ESPN, former major league pitcher Curt Schilling is firing a brushback pitch at the network, claiming he was unfairly targeted for his conservative beliefs.

Schilling, a Hall of Fame contender after a brilliant career during which he won three World Series, was sacked by the ?Worldwide Leader in Sports? after he posted a meme on Facebook protesting recent laws allowing transgendered people to use whichever bathroom they wish. ESPN claimed Schilling?s post violated a company policy prohibiting analysts from discussing politics.

?It was apparent to me early on that if you wanted to go off topic as a sports person, you had to go off topic left, or you were going to get in trouble,? Schilling said during a radio appearance on SiriusXM?s ?Breitbart News Patriot Forum.? ?Some of the most racist things I?ve ever heard have come out of people that are on the air at ESPN. They?re some of the biggest racists in sports commentating.?
