Fomer All-Star and co-World Series MVP, Curt Schilling, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Sportbox, a sportsmarketing and advisory firm and long standing licensee of Major League Baseball.
Schilling, who resides in Medfield, MA, becomes part of the 6-member board of the Boston-based company, which initially secured a license in 2003 to produce an enhanced in-ballpark experience with a line of team-branded radios that provides fans with the home clubâ€™s live radio broadcasts.
Sportbox has also been granted a license for MLB-branded consumer electronics and a large assortment of tools, the details of which are being announced in the near future.
â€śWeâ€™re honored to welcome Curt to our Board, and pleased that he accepted our outreach,â€ť said company president Bill Frabizio. â€śThroughout a 20-year career in Major League Baseball, and still today, Curtâ€™s name and reputation is synonymous with hard work, pride and dedication to his profession with unparalleled toughness.
â€śSince my retirement, I have had many business opportunities to consider. Bill's presentation of Sportbox's plans, along with his determination to set the bar high for his growing company, made this feel right for me," noted Schilling. "Their newest license fits perfectly into my own interests, and I hope I can add good counsel to the company.â€ť
