Scott Radinsky - former Angels BP coach

Recommended Posts

kind of a cool story, also the long time owner of the now closed SKATELAB in Simi Valley




Perhaps the only person in history who has both struck out Ken Griffey Jr. and opened for Green Day, Radinsky spent the 1990s pitching as a high-energy lefty reliever in Major League bullpens and spent his offseasons — still spends his offseasons — touring as a frontman for a series of Southern California-based punk outfits

"going through the baseball season, staying at the Ritz-Carlton, the Marriott, and a month later I’m somewhere in Brazil, sleeping on the floor, just played a divey-ass punk club the night before."

Radinsky missed the entire 1994 MLB season battling — and beating — Hodgkin’s Disease




Scott struck out Ken Griffey, Jr. seven times in 16 at bats.

Griffey’s on record as saying that Radinsky was the toughest lefty he ever faced.


Describing his life mixing both baseball and punk, he noted: "I don't think some of the guys [in Pulley] realized that I was on an eight-month tour [playing and coaching baseball] every day from February until October, and then I'd come home and a couple of weeks later we'd go out on a three-week European tour playing a gig every single day."
