 Harry Kalas Statue

The Sports Rarity of the Month for July, 2016 at the Sports Legends of Delaware County museum will be a twelve-inch standing figure maquette in bronze, a replica of the Harry Kalas statue that was installed at Citizens Bank Park in 2011. The sculptor, Lawrence Nowlan, who passed on July 30, 2013, was a 1983 graduate of Archbishop Carroll High School. A lifelong athlete and sports fan himself, he led the effort to memorialize Kalas, the longtime Phillies broadcaster. The reproduction is on loan from the Shane Victorino Foundation. Shane, a big fan of Harry, hung Kalas' signature baby-blue blazer and white loafers in the dugout during every game after his demise. This statue can be seen in the first-floor showcase of the Mickey Vernon Gallery of the Sports Legends of Delaware County museum at 301 Iven Road in Radnor, PA every Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm. Harry often said that Mickey was his baseball hero as a kid and remained so when he became an adult.
