Overview

The definitive homage to one of baseball’s most beloved announcers
A stirring tribute to Harry Kalas, the voice of the Philadelphia Phillies from 1971 until his sudden passing in 2009, this work captures the spirit of the man who became as synonymous with the city of Philadelphia as a Mike Schmidt home run, a cheesesteak sandwich, or the Liberty Bell. Remembering Harry Kalas includes stories about the longtime Phillies voice from a who’s who of national figures and people who were close to the late broadcaster, including Schmidt, Kalas’s family, Tim McCarver, Curt Smith, Phillies president David Montgomery, Ryan Howard, Mike Piazza, and many others. It is the definitive book about one of the most memorable personalities in the City of Brotherly Love.
