Pitcher Jamie Moyer got his first win of the seaosn today as the Philadelphia Phillies, mouring the detah of their beloved Hall of Fame announcer Harry Kalas, hung on to beat the Nationals in Washington, 9-8.
The 46-year old Moyer, yes, 46-years old, is an incredible story.
As a huge baseball fan and having been involved in broadcasting since 1978, I was very sad today to learn of the passing of the legendary Harry Kalas, longtime Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster.
I recall the mid-70' on summer nights in the backyard, when the signal was just right, switching back and forth on my transistor radio from the Brewers and Cubs to Kalas announcing the Philadelphia games that featured players like Mike Schmidt, Greg Luzinkski, Bob Boone, Steve Carlton, Tim McCarver, Larry Bowa, Garry Maddox, and Bake McBride.
Kalas collapsed in the broadcast booth prior to today's game in Washington. The World Series Champion Phillies were to be honored at the White House Tuesday. The team has postponed the reception.
Kalas was 73.
I've gotta admit, that catch Reed Johnson made Sunday night was incredible.
The pitching that was expected to be questionable has been woeful. Milwaukee has given up 36 runs in its first 6 games.
Look at where Fox Sports ranks the Brew Crew.
Although it's early, it appears that the Chicago Cubs are indeed the team to beat in the NL Central Division.
Next in town, the Cincinnati Reds who just might be what the doctor ordered. They've scored two or less runs in three of their last five outings.
