Sad day for Philadelphia Sports Fans

Our beloved Harry Kalas, sports commentator for the Phillies, died today at the age of 73. When i was 12 or so, i really became interested in baseball and used to listen and fall asleep to all of the Phillies games. Harry's voice became the soothing one of commentary and i learned alot by just listening to the games on the crackly AM radio station. Last season, he called the best games ever - especially when we went to the World Series and won it. He was in the Parade, i saw him and screamed (yeah, like a crazy person).

He will be missed - His commentary, his love for the Phillies and the fans, his knowledge of baseball...

Thank you, Harry Kalas, for all those wonderful years of commentating and for teaching me about the beautiful game of baseball. May you rest in peace.

I wonder if he could have made baseball interesting to me.
