HERE IS A PICTURE OF HARRY KALAS'S RING "THE VOICE" OF THE PHILLIES.

 

HARRY PASSED IN 2010, HE WILL BE FOREVER LOVED AND MISSED BY ALL OF US.

Golden voice of the Phillies is memorialized in bronze

August 17, 2011|BY BROAD STREET BILLY as told to DAN GERINGER, phillies@phillynews.com 215-854-59
  • The $80,000 statue honoring Harry Kalas was unveiled last night in Section 141 of Citizens Bank Park, near Harry the K's Broadcast Bar & Grille.

AS BEFITS the late Harry "The K" Kalas' immortal place in Phillies fans' affections, his $80,000 memorial statue, unveiled before last night's game, was funded by small donations from the die-hards who loved him.

Sculptor Lawrence J. Nowlan, whose human touch gives the 7-foot bronze statue much of the warmth that endeared Kalas to fans for 38 years, told Broad Street Billy that he remembers his summers "walking down the beach at the Jersey shore, hearing Harry's voice on radios, and stopping to ask, 'What's the score?' - especially if there were nice babes lying on those blankets."

"For most of us who didn't get to hang out personally with Harry, we got a voice," Nowlan said. "And it gave us the feeling that as long as Harry's voice was in the background of our lives, then everything in our world was the way it was supposed to be. That's what I tried to capture in Harry's statue - the way his voice made us feel."
