Harry died today in Washington today after passing out in the broadcast booth. Rest in peace. He was one the best if not the best announcer in baseball!

He set a standard that may never be met. A true legend.

As Whitey would say............"Hard to believe Harry." Truly a sad day, but Harry checked out right where he wanted to...........in the booth. NFL Films and the Phillies have lost a gem. R.I.P Harry. Much Respect.

I'll stop by Harry the K's on Saturday and raise a glass to you sir. :thumbright:

You could tell he truly loved what he was doing. It made him the best announcer and it made listening/watching the game more enjoyable.
RIP!

There were only 2 broadcasters I liked listening to during the games. Harry Carey and Harry Kalas.

Now they can broadcast together everyday!

RIP!

ESPN did a nice segment on Harry this morning during sportcenter. They played a couple of his clips, it gave me the chills listening to him call Michael Jacks 500th homerun and brought back a lot of memories as a youngster watching,listening and going to see the Phils....RIP Harry
