R.I.P. Harry Kalas

The long-time Phillies announcer and voice of NFL Films has passed.

The 73 year-old native of Napersville, Illinois died today shortly before the Phillies game against the Washington Nationals in D.C. after collapsing in the broadcast booth.

He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and will be sorely missed by the entire baseball community.  Especially those, like me, who love the legandary voices of the game like Kalas and Vin Scully.  I’ve listened to multiple Phillies games over the years just to hear him say, “OUTTTAAA HERRRRE” on his famous home run call.
