|2009-04-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Just saw a report that Harry Kalas collapsed and died in the booth while getting ready for today's Phillies game in Washington.
Kalas was a fixture in these parts (Clearwater, FL where the Phillies train), and his son Todd is part of the Rays announcing crew. 2 weeks, 2 tragic baseball deaths.|

|Wow. That's awful news. I never got to hear a great deal of his work, but I really loved Kalas' gravelly voice. Several years ago I came across an ESPN Classic broadcast of a baseball film done by NFL Films and narrated by Kalas, following a season in the life of pitching prospect Erskine Thomason, who got all of one game in the majors. I really wish I could see it again.
My condolences to the Phillies, their fans, and anyone else affected by his loss. (Jay Jaffe)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
