Juan Samuel Inducted to Phillies Wall of Fame

Just received word out of Philadelphia this morning that Juan Samuel is going to be the 2008 inductee into the Phillies Wall of Fame. From the team's press release:

"Samuel was the Phillies’ regular second baseman from 1984 through 1988. As a rookie in 1984, he set modern club records for most at-bats in a season (701), most triples (19) and most stolen bases (72). He became the first player in major league history to reach double digits in doubles, triples, home runs and stolen bases in each of his first four seasons.

The 47-year-old Samuel, current third base coach for Baltimore, will be inducted prior to the Friday night, August 8 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates."

Darren Daulton, Lenny Dykstra, John Kruk and Greg Gross were the other former Phillies who were finalists to be this year's inductee.
