Harry Kalas Monument in the works

Wild About Harry: Group of Fans Plan Kalas Memorial n a heartfelt demonstration of affection, a group of Kalas admirers has kicked off a plan to fund and build a permanent monument to the beloved broadcaster.

Phoenixville, PA (PRWEB) November 26, 2009 -- Harry Kalas, whose Hall of Fame baritone voice was silenced on April 13, 2009, touched the lives of millions of Philadelphians for nearly forty years as the play-by-play voice of the Philadelphia Phillies. Kalas, with fellow Hall of Famer Richie “Whitey” Ashburn, formed what is arguably the greatest announcing team in the history of baseball.

While Harry’s colorful delivery expressed his love of baseball, his call of a game became a pure expression of love for the city and fans of Philadelphia. And, as much as Harry loved the people of Philadelphia, they remain wild about Harry.

In a heartfelt demonstration of that affection, a group of Kalas admirers has kicked off a plan to fund and build a permanent monument to the beloved broadcaster.
