Longtime Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas, who punctuated innumerable home runs with his "Outta here!" call, died Monday after being found passed out in the broadcast booth before a game against the Washington Nationals. He was 73.
"We lost our voice today," team president David Montgomery said, his voice cracking. "He has loved our game and made just a tremendous contribution to our sport and certainly to our organization."
What a terrible day for baseball and the city of Philadelphia. Kalas was such a legendary figure that I thought it was only fitting for us to remember some of Kalas's best moments.
Without further ado:
RIP Harry. Your voice and impact will live on forever.
