I grew up outside of Philly knowing Harry Kalas as the voice not only of the Phillies, but of the entire sport of baseball. My dad would often have the game on TV, so memories of summer time during my childhood are connected with his voice. He'll be missed.

Also, when I first moved to Florida and went to a spring training Phillies game, my biggest thrill was not being so close to the players warming up on the field. It was running into Harry Kalas in the stands.

Yes, unfortunately. : (

It is very sad indeed. He was one of the most recognizable personalities the game of baseball has ever seen. His antics on the mound, shaping and manicuring the dirt on the mound, talking to the ball LOL, 19 win Rookie season with a MLB best ERA in the miracle '76 season.
