08:59 AM ET 06.23 | The bloody sock has been replaced by a bloody bank account. Curt Schilling admitted yesterday he lost most of his baseball fortune after his video game company filed for bankruptcy protection this month. "I'm tapped out," Schilling said during an interview with WEEI radio in Boston. The retired pitcher, who pitched Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS in The Bronx with an injured ankle that stained his sock with blood and played a major role in two of the Yankees' most crushing playoff defeats, said he invested more than $50 million of his own money into the ill-fated company. He added he told his family "the money I saved during baseball was probably all gone."

It's too bad, but if he wasn't a former big name this wouldn't even be a story.

Players make mistakes like this, some make bad investments and some gamble it away.

50 million is a lot of money to put into something and have no assets at all

I guess it just goes to show you that having the ability to smear ketchup on a sock doesn't make you a financial genius. Why would you drop $50 Million into one venture?
