Kalas Died From Heart Disease

An autopsy revealed Harry Kalas died Monday afternoon from heart disease.

A spokeswoman at the Washington D.C. chief medical examiner’s office told The Associated Press that Kalas had high blood pressure and suffered from atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The disease is a major cause of heart attacks and strokes because of plaque buildup restricting blood flow in arteries.

Kalas, 73, collapsed inside the Phillies broadcast booth at Nationals Park and died about an hour later.

That’s what got my Mom, also in her middle 70’s. Way too young.
Don’t smoke, folks.
