1994 Score, Scott Radinsky

#276 Scott Radinsky

Here is a card that I got signed at Spring Training this year. Scott was the pitching coach for the Dodgers AA affiliate in Chattanooga this year and I was able to get this card signed at the Dodgers minor league practice. I would have got more cards signed, but this was the only one that I could find. I had gotten three cards signed by him in 2010, so he was not a high priority on the trip.

Scott pitched in the Majors for eleven seasons with four clubs- the White Sox, Dodgers, Cardinals, and Indians. He worked exclusively out of the bullpen throughout his career and he finished up 42-25 with 52 saves and a 3.44 ERA.

Scott has a rather short and abbreviated signature. And he always seems to sign cards in the exact same spot- the lower middle. It doesn't matter if the card is vertical like this one or his 1991 Topps, or horizontal like his '94 Collector's Choice.

Scott Radinsky is awesome. Cancer survivor, owns a skate park, plays in a punk rock band. Oh yeah, played baseball in the majors. Pretty cool. Signature's not much to look at, but still cool.

I knew about the skate park, the band, and the ball playing, but I did not know the cancer survivor part. Thanks for sharing!
