Harry Kalas RIP 1936-2009

Today is a very sad day in Philadelphia. Harry Kalas, beloved play-by-play announcer for the Philadelphia Phillies, died yesterday at the age of 73. He was the announcer for the team since 1971 and was the embodiment of team spirit. He was not just the voice of the team, but for all Phillies fans, and everyone in the city is mourning his passing. His voice will be recognizable to people outside the city due to his work for both NFL Films and play-by-play for college football on radio. Here are two clips in his memory, one produced by cable channel Comcast Sportsnet and the other created by a loyal fan. Rest in peace Harry!
