The disbelief I experienced when I heard it was something I haven't felt in a long time... He has called every game since before I was born. In some
ways, I can imagine I heard many of his calls while my mother was pregnant with me. It was still one of the most recognizable voices in my life. Then
in my formative years, with Mitch Williams, Lenny Dykstra, Pete Incavilia, Mike Schmidt.... Ugh, it kills me. Not trying to be over-dramatic, but the
guy was a bigger part of my life than I would've expected. Kudos for starting the thread, rest in peace, Harry.
I almost find it poetic that he really did die doing what he loved. Not many people can say that, but I don't think anyone's heart belonged to the
Phillies more than his. I'm really glad the team and the city could give him the big win before he went. I suppose his timing was right, is what I'm
trying to say.
