Curt Schilling back on ESPN as ‘Baseball Tonight’ TV analyst

38 Studios is bankrupt, but Curt Schilling still has a job.

The former Red Sox ace returned to ESPN as an analyst on its “Baseball Tonight” program last Sunday, a spokesman told Sports Business Journal. He’s been with the network since 2010, the same year Rhode Island lured his game company here in exchange for a $75 million loan guarantee.

Schilling made another appearance on the program Thursday evening – the same day 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy in Delaware – alongside fellow ESPN personalities Karl Ravech and Tim Kurkjian.

It’s unknown how much ESPN pays Schilling for his appearances on the network. 38 Studios didn’t pay Schilling a salary over the past year, but the company did spend $39,424 on his travel expenses and $16,454 on his medical and dental benefits, court documents show.

Schilling also appeared twice on Colin Cowherd’s ESPN Radio podcast during the first two weeks of May, after 38 Studios defaulted on a $1.1 million payment to the R.I. Economic Development Corporation.
