Curt Schilling said Tuesday that he will run against Elizabeth Warren for her seat in the 2018 Massachusetts U.S. Senate race – if his wife approves, reported Politico.

Schilling, the outspoken former Major League baseball star with the Boston Red Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks, made the comments to radio talk show host John DePetro on WPRO-FM radio in Providence, Rhode Island.

"I've made my decision. I'm going to run," Schilling, a conservative, said about running against liberal firebrand in Warren, Politico noted. "But I haven't talked to Shonda, my wife. And ultimately it's going to come down to how her and I feel this would affect our marriage and our kids."

The former ESPN baseball commentator talked before about challenging Warren but his statements Tuesday appeared to be his most definitive on the subject, Politico reported. Warren defeated Scott Brown for the Senate seat in 2012.

Politico stated that a September polls had Warren topping Schilling 47-28 in a theoretical matchup, with Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and former Gov. Bill Weld faring better. Weld is currently the vice presidential running mate with Gary Johnson on the Libertarian presidential ticket.

Schilling was fired as an ESPN baseball analyst in April after he posted a controversial Facebook photo about North Carolina's so-called "bathroom law" in reference to transgender people, according to CBS News.

"A man is a man no matter what they call themselves," Schilling stated in the April post,  CBS News noted. "I don't care what they are, who they sleep with, men's room was designed for the penis, women's not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic."

He was briefly suspended from the network in 2015 for a Twitter post that compared Muslims and terrorism to Nazis, according to CNN.

Schilling, who is supporting the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for president, started his own three-hour weekend radio show on the Howie Carr Radio Network last month, according to the Boston Globe.

"Knowing Mr. Trump, he is a consensus builder," Schilling said on his first show, according to the Globe. "He is a team builder. … Do you ever trust Hillary to ever do the right thing? We've gotten where we've gotten because we've continued to elect politically-entrenched people."
