Yesterday, MLB.com posted a short tribute video to the late Andy Musser (he didn’t have quite the library of footage that Harry Kalas had…). In it, we’re treated to Musser’s call of Mike Schmidt’s 500th home run and, unfortunately, a much younger Chris Wheeler stomping all over another great Phillies moment.
Musser’s call was fine, but Schmidt’s historic home run lacks weight when it’s not accompanied by Harry’s pipes. Or it could just be because Wheels felt it was necessary to remind us that great players do great things… and this was a great thing.
To cleanse yourself, we recommend watching this montage of Harry's greatest calls.
