With Monday's death of legendary Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas, we wondered when fans would see the SuperPretzel commercial he was to appear in, taped last month in Ardmore.

"We were deeply saddened by Harry's sudden passing, as he'd become part of our work family, too. At this point no decisions have been made as far as the release of the SuperPretzel commercial," said Tom Weber, VP of operations at J&J Snack Foods, which owns SuperPretzel.

We called Harry's voice-over agent, Marc Guss of the William Morris Agency, to see what additional work Harry had lined up. Guss said he couldn't talk about any planned projects, but he remembered Harry, as we all do, as "the ultimate gentleman with the highest level of character."

* In other Harry news, Comcast SportsNet's hour-long tribute "Harry Kalas," which premiered last night, will be available for free on Comcast On Demand for its digital-cable customers from tonight through Sept. 30.
