The repository contains one quote from John Kruk.


After the Phillies scored eight runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to win a game:

Weíre losing by eight runs, and all Iím thinking about at that point is getting back to the hotel by midnight because thatís when room service closes. All of a sudden we start getting hits and more hits, and Iím saying, ďIím not going to make it.Ē If youíre not going to get room service you might as well win.
