Sadness for the Phillies Phaithful

Legendary Phillies baseball announcer and coiner of the term "Outta Here!", Marry Kalas passed away today at the age of 73 in the broadcast booth before the Phillies game. Sitting quietly in his chair, the famed announcer was discovered by the Phillies director of broadcasting at 12:30 pm.

Having served with the team since 1971, Kalas was as recognizable among fans as the Phanatic himself.
