Harry Kalas was the voice of the Phillies since the year I was born, 1971.
When I moved down here to NC I literally could not watch Phillies games on TBS or ESPN because the broadcasters didn't sound right. Harry's voice was so distinctive and wonderful, and he'd get so freaking excited. He was adored.
He had a heart attack today in one of the broadcast booths at the Washington Nationals' ball park. He died. He was 73.
I would really, really like to see how the team handles this tonight during their game. But since the game won't be broadcast, I guess I'll do some Googling tomorrow.
Safe Journey, Harry.
