Hall of Fame Thursday - Harry Kalas

Harry Kalas 2008 10 29

Harry Kalas received the Ford C Frick Award for his Broadcasting Contributions to Baseball in 2002. For Hall of Fame Thursday I have collected a few links on Kalas. This is his Baseball Hall of Fame Bio and here is his the text of his Frick Award acceptance Speech. Philly Sports Hall of Fame Bio (Kalas was a member of the Charter Class - 2004). There is also a Harry Kalas Obituary on Baseball Prospectus.
