Calling the TV broadcast of the game from the outfield on Tuesday night

If the voices sound a little happier on Tuesday night's baseball broadcast of the Phillies game vs. the Los Angeles, don't be surprised.

For the third year, Comcast Sportsnet will move the broadcast booth around the park a little to give the fans a chance to hear a different call of the game and possibly view the broadcast if you're at the stadium.

This year, the broadcast will be located out near Harry The K's Restaurant in left field, it's a lot of fun, and who can forget Tom McCarthy's catch of a home run ball when they recorded from the center field location a couple season's ago on June 27th, 2014. He made the catch so effortlessly, and then flung the ball back on the field because the opposing team had hit the home run.

McCarthy, who assumed the role of 'the voice' of the Phillies on television after Harry Kalas passed away, had this to say about the different locations that Sportsnet has broadcasted from, "To be able to broadcast from different parts of the ballpark is such a treat for all of us,” said McCarthy. “Over the last couple of seasons we have been able to absorb the great vibes at the ballpark and enjoy the game with the best fans in baseball. This year will be no different. The perch at Harry the Ks is not only special in name but in atmosphere. This is a great opportunity for us to show off some of the best spots to watch a game. I know I can speak for Matt and Ben when I say we are excited for this baseball moment."

All of this is of course dependent on weather conditions, if rain is forecast in the area, the plan may have to be scuttled. 

Speaking of Harry Kalas, he will be honored with a bobble figurine on Saturday, August 20th, 2016, all fans will get the Harry Kalas figurine upon entrance to the ballpark when the Phils play the St. Louis Cardinals at 7:05 PM.
