My Blackberry has been buzzing all day, and each time I'm amazed by the eloquence and depth of feeling. Sorry I can't respond personally to each note, but they were all remarkable.

An opportunity to pay respects to the Hall of Fame broadcaster will be given on a first come, first served basis to as many fans as possible from 8:00 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. At that time, all fans in attendance will be directed to seats for an on-field tribute that will begin at 1:00 p.m. Additional information will be made public as details are finalized. Funeral services and burial will be private and held early next week. Uniform Patches Beginning tomorrow, players will wear HK uniform patches for the rest of the season. The black circular HK patch will be located on the front of the jersey in the area of the heart. Friday Night The Phillies return home on Friday night to play San Diego at 7:05.
