loss of an old friend
im sure some of you have already heard, baseball lost one of its legends yesterday
Harry Kalas died at about 1pm yesterday before the Phillies/Nats game.
For those of you who dont know who Harry Kalas is, he is one of the most iconic sports anouncers in all of baseball. We in Philladelphia were blessed with his presence and his unforgettable voice for many years. His voice alone was one of the most memorable things about baseball, no one will ever forget his: "Swing...and a long drive, watch this baby, outta here! Home run <insert player's name here>". Last year, he was able to wittness his Phillies become the World Champions of Baseball

let's all take a moment to remember what a legend Harry was, and give him a moment of silence, he will always be with us
