Phils to honor Kruk in August

It’s been a long time coming it seems.

Another member of the infamous 1993 Phillies, John Kruk, will join the Phillies Wall of Fame.

Kruk, a three-time All-Star, was a big component of the 1993 team that lost to the Toronto Blue Jays in six games of the World Series. He hit .316 with 14 homers and 85 RBIs that year.

Kruk’s career numbers with the Phils were strong, hitting .309 with 62 homers and 390 RBIs in six seasons. Kruk hit 100 home runs total in his 10-year career.

Kruk is now a baseball analyst on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight and is one of their best guys, both personality wise and in the knowledge of the game.

Kruk is the second player of the 1993 Phillies to make the Wall of Fame. Last year, Darren Daulton was honored.

The ceremony will be held August 12 before the Phils game against the Washington Nationals.

Here is a list of the Wall of Fame members.
