Baseball great Curt Schilling unleashed a nasty Twitter salvo against Jason Kander after the rising Democratic star slammed Donald Trump on a national TV appearance.

The retired Boston Red Sox pitcher, who is now perhaps better known as a far right wing pundit of sorts, called Kander a “piece of garbage” and said he deserves an “ass whipping” for his remarks.

Kander is a fresh-faced Jewish Democrat who came close to knocking off veteran Republican Sen. Roy Blunt in deep red Missouri.

He fired back at Schilling that his threats of violence may not sit well with Hall of Fame voters who take personal conduct into account when making decisions about inducting candidates.
