Hall of Fame PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES TV and radio play-by-play legend HARRY KALAS has undergone surgery for an undisclosed ailment and will miss most of spring training, reports the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS' DAVID MURPHY.
PHILLIES Dir. of Broadcasting ROB BROOKS told MURPHY that KALAS, who turns 73 on MARCH 26, had undergone a "minor medical procedure" but "there's nothing to worry about." TOM MCCARTHY will move over from the TV side to pitch in for "HARRY THE K" on the radio side until KALAS returns. The defending World Champions air on a network headed by CBS RADIO Talk WPHT-A (THE BIG TALKER)/PHILADELPHIA.
