During an interview on WEEI radio in Boston, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling said that his baseball fortune is "probably all gone" now due to his failed business venture, 38 Studios.
He also said in the interview that part of the blame should be placed on Rhode Island officials and Governor Lincoln Chafee.
Schilling admits that he was partly to blame for 38 Studios failing, but said that Chafee had a lot of blame due to the governor questioning the firm's solvency were harmful as Schilling tried to raise private capital to stay afloat.
Chafee, an independent, vocally opposed the state's plan to loan money to 38 Studios during his gubernatorial campaign in 2010, but became the "company's biggest cheerleader" after the deal was finalized.
Schilling goes on to blame Chafee even further when he accused him of failing to work with an investor who was willing to put an upwards of $20 million into the floundering company. The investor walked away after they became frustrated with Chafee's inaction.
Schilling made just over $114 million during his MLB career and he never took any money from the company, not even a salary.
"It's been kind of a surreal 60, 75 days," Schilling said of the company's collapse. "It's crushing and devastating to see it fail the way that it did." He also said that he never intended to hurt to workers of 38 Studios.
Schiiling also said that losing his fortune will be a life changing thing for his family. "I would imagine the next foreseeable time our lives is going to be consumed by this. It's a life changing thing."
Schilling also said of his family, "will probably start to change and be very different for us."
38 Studios closed its doors in May of 2012, laying off its workers in Rhode Island and Maryland.
