On April 13th, 2009, the Phillies were visiting the Nationals on what was the home opener there. Harry Kalas was in the booth for pre-game, as usual. Nothing would end like usual though, as Harry would die in the booth a short time before the first pitch that day.
For those of us who listened to his voice every Summer for a couple of decades, it was a painful day, and painful season since then. I must admit that frankly, no one has really filled his void in the broadcast booth since. I still hold high hopes for Moyer and Stairs, but it's early.
I remember Harry's death in DC the same way I remember Ashburn's in New York, from my childhood. Both are two of the saddest days I've had as a Phillies fan.
