4 – John Kruk – first base (1993 stats: 14 HR, 85 RBI, .316 AVG, .905 OPS)
The ultimate throwback player who appeared better suited for the weekend rec softball league, was a huge part of the 1993 team. In his third of three consecutive All-Star seasons, Kruk was a mainstay in the number three hole in the lineup. He scored 100 runs, hit 33 doubles, walked 111 times, had an on-base percentage of .430 and played surprisingly good defense. Kruk also led the team with five RBI in their NLCS win over the Braves.
Kruk played one more season with the Phillies before retiring with the White Sox in 1995 with a career .300 average.
