John Kruk: Phantasy Legend. Phillies Legend.
It’s safe to say that one of the most entertaining Legends in Phillies Phantasy Camp this past January was the one and only, John Kruk.
This past weekend, Kruk got his due when he was officially given a rightful spot on the illustrious Phillies Wall of Fame.
Thanks to my friend Tom, I now have an incredible collection of DVD containing his VHS-transferred Phillies “Home Companion” videos. Not only were these a fantastic flashbacks to a time when I started to really come in to my own as a Phillies fan, but also made me look at these players in a completely different light. Practically every single Phantasy Camp Legend made an appearance in these wonderful baseball time capsules.
Needless to say, the vast quantity and quality of classic Kruk moments were boundless. I tried my best and compiled some of my favorite moments. Here’s to you Krukker!
