Baseball Icon Passes Away

Anybody that likes baseball knows the name Harry Kalas. In addition to doing play-by-play and commentary

Yesterday, Harry passed away doing what he loved – being in the booth, getting ready to call a game.

For me, I spent many nights as a kid holding my trusty little AM radio listening to Kalas call Phillies games…way past my bedtime. He also was the voice behind a lot of NFL films clips.

My two favorite Kalas calls of all time:

Phillies win 2008 World Series

Mike Schmidt hits 500 home run (0:48)

ESPN’s take on Harry Kalas.
