Sportbox, a Boston-based sports marketing and advisory firm and a long standing licensee of Major League Baseball, said that former Red Sox star Curt Schilling has been appointed to its board of directors.
The company's press release included a statement from Schilling, who referenced Sportbox president Bill Frabizio.
"Since my retirement, I have had many business opportunities to consider," Schilling said. "Bill's presentation of Sportbox's plans, along with his determination to set the bar high for his growing company, made this feel right for me."

In 2006, Schilling founded 38 Studios, an entertainment and IP creation company based in Maynard that looks to develop such products as online and console video games, toys, novels, comics, film, TV, and other forms of digital media.
Sportbox said it initially secured a Major League Baseball license in 2003 to produce an enhanced in-ballpark experience with a line of unique, team-branded radios that provides fans with the home club’s live radio broadcasts. Sportbox added that it has also been granted a license for MLB-branded consumer electronics and a large assortment of tools, the details of which are being announced in the near future.
