The Phillies have accepted a 7 1/2 foot statue of legendary announcer Harry Kalas to be displayed at Citizens Bank Park.
The statue was presented to the Phillies as a gift from Dear Harry Inc., a fan-based group. The sculptor was Lawrence J. Nowlan.
Phillies representatives saw the first statue for the first time a few weeks ago.
"We were very impressed," Mike Stiles, senior vice president administration and operations said in a statement. "It's a wonderful likeness of Harry that really captures his spirit. There are interesting details that I don't want to give away. I think fans will be very excited to see this statue of Harry at the ballpark.
