What an awful double punch to the stomach to start the season. First Nick Adenhart tragically dies last Thursday and now Phillies announcer Harry Kalas is dead at the age of 73 after collapsing in his broadcast booth earlier today in Washington.
I'll be writing much more about this, but I wanted to immediately establish a place where people can post their memories of Harry The K. I met him briefly in Milwaukee last season and I'm glad I had the chance. What a wonderful man. What a wonderful announcer.
My thoughts go out to Kalas' family, his friends and his millions of fans around the world.
