Will the former baseball lifer be able to handle being away from the game?
"So far I have," Stelmaszek said. "People have called. I'm getting nice calls. But it's definitely a void -- this is the only thing I've done since high school. The flip side of it is that I've had a good run, so I've got no complaints. I'm not going to cry in my beer about what happened. That's just the way the business works. I look at the bright side."
Stelmaszek probably would have continued in baseball if he had the chance.
"But the phone wasn't ringing off the hook," he said.
