Kruk contemplating the meaning of life

John Kruk is a pinch-hitter for the NL All-Stars on the NES version of RBI.

In RBI life, he is a surprisingly quick PH, not a powerful hitter, but can be dangerous when adding the PH bonus. In real life, he is a former Padre, Phillie, and White Sock who drank beer and smoked cigarettes. Once, he traded his uniform number for two cases of beer.
