Schilling’s trip starts with bomb scare caused by pitcher’s son

Curt Schilling’s travel plans were interrupted Saturday morning when his 12-year-old son triggered an emergency at Logan International Airport.

The former major-league pitcher says he was at the security checkpoint when his son blurted out that he may have left a fake hand grenade in his carry-on bag.

Airport officials escorted Schilling and his family into a private room, where the TSA higher-ups apparently accepted the explanation. The incident did not cause any delays in their trip out of Boston.
