Happy Birthday John Kruk!!!

John Kruk turns 50 years old today!

A man with one of the largest personalities in baseball during his playing days, Kruk was always a fan favorite.  Although Kruk did not look like the prototypical baseball player, or athlete for that matter, he was as talented a hitter as there was in the late 80’s.  In Kruk’s 10-year playing career, he hit .300 or better 7 times.  And when he retired from the sport, he left with a career batting average of .300 while amassing 100 home runs and 592 RBI.

But for Kruk’s birthday I want to give him something else.  Something nobody else may think of to give him.  I want to give him 1 more double.  I mean, who wants to retire from the game with 199 doubles when 200 sounds so much better?  So, ‘Krukkie’ my gift to you is 1 more ‘2-bagger’. 

Happy Birthday & Enojy!!!

  1. Happy Birthday to the always entertaining J.K.
    I remember his role in the movie The Fan.

  2. When most of us see the hefty Kruk on the set of ESPN, we tend to forget how well this kid could hit.

    .300 career batting average in ten seasons is nothing to thumb one’s nose at.

  3. I agree w/ Chris.
    A .300 batting average in a 10 year career is impressive & Krunk deserves bragging rights!
