Personal Responsibility – What We Can Learn From A Baseball Player

Today on Curt Schilling’s Blog, he apologized in this post for comments he made about Barry Bonds alleged use of steroids yesterday in an interview. Most people would have apologized that they were “misquoted” or they were “pressured” to say something they didn’t really want to. Unlike everyone else Schilling, veteran pitcher for Boston Red Sox, apologized for saying something very irresponsible. I would encourage everyone to go over to read his post because he shows understanding what he did, the effects it had on others, and take responsibility on it.

Everyone has days and events in life they’d love to push the rewind button on, yesterday was one of those days. Regardless of my opinions, thoughts and beliefs on anything Barry Bonds it was absolutely irresponsible and wrong to say what I did. I don’t think it’s within anyone’s right to say the things I said yesterday and affect other peoples lives in that way.

I’d love to tell you I was ambushed, misquoted, misinterpreted, something other than what it was, but I wasn’t.
