At the Phillies game: Kalas statue, orchestra performance

    Tonight’s a big night for the Phillies, assuming the rain holds out. Before the Phils take to the field against the Diamondbacks, the long-awaited Harry Kalas statue will be unveiled and the Philadelphia Orchestra will lead the fans in the National Anthem.

     

    Heavy rain postponed the Phils’ Sunday game against the Nationals, and also delayed the unveiling of the the 7.5-foot, fan-funded bronze statue. The orchestra plays at 6:57 p.m. before the first pitch — one of the last local performances before heading to the European Festivals Tour Monday.

    Nothing says Philadelphia like some baseball, an orchestra performance and a tribute to Harry the K.
