Outta Here!

If you are from the Philadelphia area, I'm sure you've heard the news by now. But earlier this week on Monday, we lost one of the greatest voices the Delaware county has. Harry Kalas passed away in the broadcasting booth before the start of the Phillie's game against the Washington Nationals. He died of cardiovascular diesease. The Phils went on to win the game, but we lost a legend in broadcasting. Harry had a voice that was known without seeing a face. He was with the Phillies for 38 years, so for me I've never heard another voice with the Phils. It was so weird listening to the game on Monday and I'm sure it's going to take a long time to get used to it. In 2002, Harry was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

A great tribute video by Comcast:

The Phillies are holding a special memorial service for HK, Saturday at Citizens Bank Park, starting at 8 am, and at 1 pm there will be an on field tribute for Harry. The Phils are also adding HK to their uniforms for the rest of the season.

If you remember when I posted awhile back when the Phillies won the world series, I leave you with that final memory we have of Harry. At least he got to call a World Series.
