Harry Kalas

The Phillies' great announcer Harry Kalas has passed away after collapsing in the broadcast booth prior to Philadelphia's game at Washington. I'm not a Phillies fan, but I love Kalas. He had the best announcer voice and his signature home run call of "Outta here!" puts a smile on my face every time. I'm sad at his passing, but glad that he was able to see the Phils win the 2008 World Series before he passed away.

It pains me to think of young baseball fans not being able to grow up listening to Harry call games every night.

RIP.
