Sporting News' No. 1 "Good Guy," Boston Red Sox Pitcher Curt Schilling, stops by Tuesday on The Early Show to discuss his efforts to help find a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease.

Schilling and his family have dedicated their time and efforts raising awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Schilling and his wife started the "Curt's Pitch Foundation" in November of 1992, which is dedicated to finding a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease. The Curt's Pitch Foundation and other fundraisers have raised $4.5 million for ALS charities in Philadelphia, Phoenix and Boston.

Schilling and his wife, Shonda Schilling, also started SHADE, which increased education and awareness about melanoma, which, if undetected, can be fatal within six months.
