Harry Kalas: 1936-2009

Harry Kalas, the voice of the Philadelphia Phillies and arguably the best baseball broadcaster of the generation, died today.  Kalas was one of the greatest “homers” in broadcasting history and will be irreplaceable in Philadelphia and baseball.  Harry never lost faith in the Phightins who so often broke fans hearts over his time on the mic.  Its only fitting that Kalas goes just days after the Phils raised the 2008 championship banner at Citizan’s Bank park.  Two words to describe the legend: high hopes.
