Honoring the Legend

It’s Harry Kalas Tribue Night, and so far it has been very impressive.

Harry’s signature is on the field. The TV broadcast booth has been renamed in his honor. The pregame ceremonies were great. A tribute video on the PhanaVision scoreboard in left field. Kalas’ sons – Todd, Brad and Kane – threw the first balls to Mike Schmidt, John Kruk and Jimmy Rollins, representing the last three decades of baseball with Kalas in the booth.

There was a moment of silence.

Kane sang the national anthem, with Rollins holding a pair of Kalas’ famous white shoes and Chase Utley holding Kalas’ powder blue sport coat.

The Phillies did a great job with it.
