    Impossible for me to not miss Harry — one of the great voices of baseball and even a greater human being. God rest his sould as we keep his memory alive and well. An exemplary example for all sports celebrities.

    Phillies signed Mike Fontenot, I read today. I hope this does not adversely affect Freddy Galvis. I know Harry would want to see the development of Freddy, as well.

    Fontenot will probably take Pete Orr’s spot, or so I would conject.

    Galvis isn’t going anywhere. He’s on a four game hitting streak with 5 RBI and flashing some serious leather.

    Miss ya Harry!

    Hard to believe it’s been four years. I still think of him every time I tune in the Phils and have to listen to the buffoons that currently occupy the TV booth. God, I miss him.

      So do I, Chris and I totally agree with you! None of those fools could sew a patch on HK’s ass when it comes to calling a ballgame!

    No broadcasting team was ever better than the late Harry Kalas and the late Richie Ashburn together. They made baseball fun and interesting to listen to, and I spent many an afternoon or evening in my office listening to them while working hard on various matters, on something we used to call “The Radio” on 1210 AM. They were just the best. After Richie passed to the great HOF in the sky, Harry the K persevered and took us to a World Series. Now he and Richie are together, calling ballgames for God in heaven.

    You can’t really understand how awful other broadcasters are until you have lived in other cities and heard how awful they are. Boston? Dreadful. Chicago? Awful. Los Angeles? Gag me with a spoon. Baltimore? minor league. Only Detroit came close, but only close.

    In an era when sportscasters try to be “professionals”, Harry and Richie were unabashed home team fans, like Mel Allen used to be for the Yankees and on Game of the Week. They were the classic root root root for the home team type of broadcasters and they never pretended they were snobby journalists. They were just broadcasting a ballgame, and they made you part of the family.

    They will always be missed.
