Harry Kalas passes away

Harry Kalas, long-time Phillies broadcaster passed away today, after collapsing in the broadcast booth prior to this afternoon's game in Washington. Harry was 73 and will be sorely missed by Phils fans everywhere. He was love-able, and he did so many things for this city and team. He was privileged enough to call both World Series victories in team history, and no one could call it like he could.

We lost a beloved member of the organization today, as his voice has filled so many of our homes nightly since 1971. Watching the Phillies will never be quite the same, and team president Dave Montgomery said it best, "we have lost our voice."

  2. Harry was the voice of the Phillies for so long. He gave all he had, we all knew this day was coming but still it's so sad.

    Whitey, take care of Harry up there, and let's not forget Gene Hart too! You guys had hearts of gold, and we'll never forget you.
