Learning of another loss to baseball

There was a sad feeling at Nationals Park today with the passing of Hall of Fame broadcaster Harry Kalas.

Nats Assistant GM and VP Bob Boone told me he was shocked and saddened by the sudden death of the longtime voice of the Phillies.

Austin Kearns described Kalas as having an “awesome voice” and Josh Willingham told me before the game he especially liked listening to Kalas’ home run calls.

Harry Kalas was one of those men who always had something good to say, and he will be sorely missed.
