My John Kruk Story


but the john kruk stuff is so far down the page in the rockpile, i figured this would be the only way anyone sees it.

 

1993, phils are just battering the rox in mile hi (they had some serious hitters!!).

 

I'm sitting right behind the third base dugout...

 

Fat boy on 1st, two outs, 3-2 count..

 

Darren Daulton Batting, if I remember correctly...

 

you've got it - long foul ball down the line....

 

Kruk takes off - chugs nearly to third before he realizes it's foul..

 

Waddles across the diamond back to first...

 

Next pitch - another long foul ball...


Kruk chugs around second again....

Next pitch - I KID YOU NOT..

 

another long foul ball - kruk isn't exactly chugging now, but this one is close to fair, so he has to go all the way to third....


FOUL BALL!!!

 

Kruk stops, bends over, hands on his knees...


third base coach comes over, talks to him..


third base coach calls time out...

 

The entire section behind third erupts, Kruk is taking a load of crap....

 

Finally, he goes back to first, and Daulton makes an out.

 

One more time might have finished him, or maybe, even better, they'd have pinch run for him!!!

 

Hmmm, maybe this is why he dislikes us???
