President Donald Trump tweeted late Sunday night calling for former World Series MVP pitcher Curt Schilling's induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Trump tweeted, "Curt Schilling deserves to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Great record, especially when under pressure and when it mattered most. Do what everyone in Baseball knows is right!"
Ballots for the Hall of Fame were due Dec. 31. The results of the vote will be announced Tuesday, with the new electees being inducted July 21 in Cooperstown, Pa.

Schilling is an outspoken conservative and Trump supporter who joined Breitbart in 2016. He was not invited to the Red Sox's celebration of the 2004 World Series team. Schilling joined Mark Levin on his show "Life, Liberty & Levin" on an episode that aired Sunday night.
