John Kruk - 2011 Phillies Wall of Fame

The Phillies honored former player John Kruk last night, inducting him into the PHILLIES WALL OF FAME as part of their annual "alumni weekend" festivities. This event has become one of my favorite parts of the long baseball season. In this single image you can see (going left to right) Dallas Green's back, Steve Carlton, Mike Schmidt, Dick Allen, Greg Luzinski, Garry Maddox, Tony Taylor, and Bob Boone.

As expected, John Kruk was both funny and effective during his speech, here is a video:

Kruk has always been one of my favorites, even when he played for the San Diego Padres and later the White Sox. That unexpected 1993 pennant season was a lot of fun to watch from start to finish and still holds some great memories for me. His induction is well deserved and inspired me to make a special John Kruk wallpaper.
