How To Prepare On Your Off-Days
Some players read scouting reports.
Others watch film.
Still others take extra batting practice, or throw on the side.
Curt Schilling? He likes to make believe he's a loot-dropping virtual bad guy who battles unwary players.
Schilling's video game character will reside within the online world of EverQuest II for three days during the Yankees vs Red Sox baseball series running through June 5, 6 and 7. During this time, anyone can register for and log into EverQuest II at www.battleals.com to challenge the evil Schilling character.
I can guarantee you if it were someone like.. say Alex Rodriguez instead, the media would be ripping him for goofing off. They'd also probably wait until a player defeated him and have a segment on SportsCenter about how "un-clutch" he is when it comes to battling half-orc clerics.
