Ten Foot Pole and current Pulley vocalist, Scott Radinsky, has been let go from his day job with the Cleveland Indians. Radinsky was a former major league ball player himself, having played for 11 years as a relief pitcher in the 90s. The team had suffered an 11-game losing streak but didn’t happen until the streak ended with a victory over the Minnesota Twins this past week.
Scott commented on the situation:
Along with his part-time role in Pulley, Scott owns and runs Skatelab, a skate park and museum in Simi Valley, California..
Honestly, I didn’t really see this coming. I really didn’t. We were losing and things get magnified. Then you start hearing rumors that someone is going to take the fall. I’m holding my head pretty high. All I care about is those pitchers. I wanted to do everything I could to make them successful and help them establish themselves in the big leagues. I’m disappointed if I’m part of the reason they didn’t succeed. Working with pitchers is why I got into coaching. My only concern was working with those pitchers, to help them get better, and protect them until the day I was fired.
Pulley last released The Long and the Short of It in 2011.
