    Unhappy Voice of the Phillies for 38 years ... now silent

    Harry Kalas passed away today. I grew up listening to him.

    KYW Newsradio 1060 Philadelphia - Phillies' Broadcaster Harry Kalas Dies Suddenly at 73

    Longtime Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas, 73, died on Monday afternoon in Washington, DC, shortly after being rushed by ambulance to George Washington University Hospital.

    Phillies' president David Montgomery says Kalas was found after passing out in the broadcast booth, on the seventh level of Nationals Stadium, about 12:30pm, just a couple of hours before Monday's scheduled 3pm game against the Nationals.

    Very sad. That guy was Philadelphia as much as pretzels, cheese steaks, and the Liberty Bell.

    I decided Monday that I'm watching the Phils with the sound muted for the first 38 games in tribute to each year he helped make baseball a better game. I'll put some music or something on so I don't have to think about it.

    I had a surprisingly hard time with this Monday and Tuesday. Lazy Summer Saturday and Sunday gamedays this man practically read me bedtime stories of baseball as I drifted in and out of consciousness. The first through third and seventh through ninth were the most relaxing times of my weekend. He'll be dearly missed. Sarge, Wheeler and McCarthy will never fill the shoes left behind by The K.
