    The only thing that made the Phillies beating the Dodgers in the NLCS and then eventually becoming the World Champions tolerable for me was hearing Harry Kalas call the games one last time. He'll go down as one of the greatest voices in sports history and will be missed dearly.

    I read that this morning that Kalas passed away on the pregame show for the Nationals Stadium today. What a great loss to not only the Phillies,but to baseball.I turned the tv to see whether I could get the Phillies channel to see what they were saying.Only to get the Nationals station and didn't hear any word from their announcers.

    He has been the voice of NFL Films since John Facenda died 25 years ago. Going to be missed.

    Holy Crap! Harry Kalas is literally the voice for all of Philadelphia. Seems like half the commercials on TV and radio have had his voice on them since forever. Every time I hear his voice it reminds me of when I was a kid.

    Very sad. I'm going to drown my sorrows in Tasty Kakes and birch beer.

    thoughts and prayers! I loved listening to Kalas do NFL games on the radio.

    Spent a lot of time in the City of Brotherly Love for work over the years and always, always, always loved hearing Harry call Eagles and Phillies games while I was there. I also seem to remember him calling some MNF games on the radio over the years.

    He will clearly be missed.

    RIP Harry and thanks for the memories.
