ESPN is allowing Curt Schilling to return to the broadcast booth in his baseball analyst role after he made remarks about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that appeared to violate company policy.

Schilling, who is best known for helping the Boston Red Sox win their first World Series title in 86 years in 2004, appeared on a Kansas City radio station on March 1. He spoke about Clinton when the subject turned to her campaign.

"If she's allowed to get to the general election before she's in prison I'll be stunned and upset," Schilling said, the Washington Post reports. "After what happened to General Petraeus, she should be buried under a jail somewhere."

ESPN's company policy around the 2016 presidential campaign does not allow "political editorializing, personal attacks or 'drive-by' comments regarding the candidates and their campaigns."

However, the network confirmed to Vocativ that Schilling will not be fired. "We've addressed it with Curt," an ESPN spokesman said.

Schilling has not been shy over the years that he is politically conservative. He campaigned for President George W. Bush in 2004 and has made several political remarks over the years. He even considered running for the Senate in Massachusetts following Sen. Ted Kennedy's death in 2009.

After he was denied a spot in the Baseball Hall Of Fame's 2015 class, Schilling said his political stance might have played a role in the voting.

"I think he's a Democrat, and so … I know that as a Republican that there's some people that really don't like that," Schilling said regarding former Braves pitcher John Smoltz, who was voted into the Hall.
