    You guys and baseball fans in general lost a good one yesterday with the passing of Harry Kalas, the Phillies announcer. I grew up listening to baseball on AM radio before cable TV. My favorite team was the Braves, on WSB out of Atlanta, but just as memorable was listening to the Pirates on KDKA,the Cardinals on KMOX , but I always enjoyed catching the Phillies games on WCAU with Kalas behind the microphone. Had such a distinctive voice that was also the voice heard on NFL Films, we saw on TV.

    Thanks, Harry K will be missed. I remember Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn calling the Phillies games when I was growing up. Richie Ashburn passed away back in 97 and I just have this picture in my mind of the two of them now calling game in that field of dreams.

    Harry Kalas was the philly version of my cubs harry cary. A voice you hear and know what game it is and what team is playing. We lost another great man that really could deliver a game into the mind.
