Harry the K calls homers on his day off



Harry Kalas
isn't used to leisurely watching a Phillies game, but the legendary broadcaster did just that Sunday. ESPN was carrying the Phils/Mets battle on TV and Kalas was off from the 1210 AM broadcast, which Larry Andersen, Tom McCarthy and Scott Franzke handled. 98 WOGL's Bob Pantano invited Harry the K to join him and Michael Divine, a casino consultant, in a Citizens Bank Park suite to watch the game, with one condition. If there was a Phillies homer, Kalas had to call it. Sure enough, Chase Utley hit two home runs, which Kalas graciously confirmed were in fact outtahere. Pantano says Kalas told him it was the only time he'd been at the ballpark in 31 years that he wasn't working.
