WASHINGTON (AP) -- Longtime Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas has died at age 73.
Team president David Montgomery announced the death Monday a short time after Kalas passed out in the broadcast booth before a game in Washington against the Nationals.
Montogomery's voice was cracking as he said that "we have lost our voice." Kalas had been with the Phillies since 1971 and was known for his distinctive "Outta here!" home run call.
