Bidding is under way for the bloody sock worn by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in the 2004 World Series, which he put up for sale after the high-profile collapse of his video game company. Chris Ivy, director of sports for Texas-based Heritage Auctions, said bidding opened at $25,000 and was up to $32,500 by Monday. Live bidding will take place in New York City on Saturday. The sock — stained when Schilling pitched on an injured ankle during the second game of the World Series that the Sox went on to win — had been on loan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
