Harry Remembered

The Phillies have planned numerous tributes to recently-deceased announcer Harry Kalas including (but not limited to) altering the field, outfield wall, team uniforms, playing a pre-recorded version of "Outta Here" after every homerun, and the like.

I am reminded of a sketch on Saturday Night Live where Phil Hartman portrayed Baseball's then-commissioner Fay Vincent - suggesting that, in order to honor recently deceased commissioner Bart Giammati, homeruns should be renamed "barts" and RBIs should be renamed "giamatts".

I'm just sayin'.
