Former star pitcher turned television analyst Curt Schilling has announced that he is battling cancer.

Schilling on Wednesday released a statement through his employer, ESPN, saying he plans to "embrace this fight, just like the rest of them, with resolute faith, and head on."

The statement did not indicate what type of cancer Schilling has, when he was diagnosed or what his prognosis might be.

Schilling, who starred in World Series for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox, has been in the news recently after the failure of 38 Studios, a video game company he owned in Rhode Island.

Schilling has said he invested and lost as much $50 million in that company.

Schilling played in the major leagues for 20 seasons with five different clubs.
