For the second year in a row, the Phillies will induct a member of the 1993 National League champions into the team's Wall of Fame.

John Kruk is the newest member, the team announced Wednesday. He will be honored before the Aug. 12 game against Washington. He follows Darren Daulton, who was honored last season. They are the only two players from the '93 team to make the wall. So which other players from that beloved squad will be honored?

There's Curt Schilling, who is all but a shoo-in. Lenny Dykstra? His legal problems could complicate things. There are no other clear candidates. Manager Jim Fregosi had only one winning season; it happened in 1993. Both Mitch Williams and Jim Eisenreich had short Phillies careers. - Matt Gelb
