Comfortech Keynote Event

Thursday, September 19 - 10:00am
Pennsylvania Convention Center
Terrace Ballroom

The Best Damn Keynote at Comfortech. Period.

John Kruk, 3-time MLB All-Star and Lead Analyst, ESPN Sunday Night Baseball

John Kruk, a three-time All-Star outfielder/first baseman, serves as an analyst on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball and Baseball Tonight. He joined ESPN for the 2004 season, making his debut during a Spring Training telecast between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies from Tampa, Fla. In March 2006, Kruk also provided game analysis for several World Baseball Classic and Spring Training telecasts on ESPN.

Kruk retired in 1995 following a 10-year Major League career with the Philadelphia Phillies, San Diego Padres and the Chicago White Sox, in which he posted a .300 batting average with 100 home runs and 592 runs batted in. During a White Sox/Orioles game, Kruk retired from baseball after hitting a single in the top of the first inning off Baltimore's Scott Erickson.

In 2003, Kruk served as TV and radio analyst for Comcast SportsNet and WPEN-AM, respectively, and worked in marketing and client relations for the Phillies. He was named to the All-Vet team, which honored the best players to take the field in the 32-year history of Veterans Stadium, in 2003.

Kruk was a contributor to Fox Sports Net's The Best Damn Sports Show Period from 2001 through 2003. Previously, he was a hitting coach for the Phillies' Double-A team in Reading, Pa. during the 2001 season.

  • We will use the combination of these questions and on-site questions for the exclusive panel.
  • In addition, all Comfortech contractor attendees will receive a form in their registration bags so they can provide additional questions prior to the Executive Leadership Forum on Friday.
  • We will have five manufacturers, representing the HVAC, hydronics, and plumbing manufacturing sectors of the industry to participate.
