Frank Deford Tribute to Kalas and Harwell

The Phillies will later today embark on their first Post-Season of my lifetime without Harry Kalas along for the ride. As sad as this is to think about it is good to know that, after covering years of futility, Kalas did get to cover the Philllies 2008 World Series victory prior to his passing.

The Phils will face off in the NLDS against the Colorado Rockies. The last game that Harry Kalas ever broadcast was on Easter Sunday, back in April, versus the Rockies.

Last week NPR Sports Columnist and Commentator Frank Deford honored both Kalas and long time Detroit Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell during his Wednesday commentary. For the text and audio from his commentary click here.

I think Frank does a good job - I enjoy hear or reading his work.

I enjoyed hearing Kalas during last year's World Series. He was the best.
