Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement today on the passing of Hall of Fame broadcaster Harry Kalas:

"Major League Baseball has lost one of the great voices of our generation. Harry Kalas was an outstanding ambassador for the game, first as an original member of the Houston Astros' broadcast team in 1965 and, beginning in 1971, as the voice of the Philadelphia Phillies.

"Baseball announcers have a special bond with their audience, and Harry represented the best of baseball not only to the fans of the Phillies, but to fans everywhere. On behalf of all of Major League Baseball, I express my dearest sympathy to Harry's wife, Eileen, and his three sons, Todd, Brad and Kane."
