Kalas died of heart disease

WASHINGTON– People around the nation continue to remember Phillies’ legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas, who died yesterday after collapsing in a Nationals Park press box.  There was an autopsy conducted on Kalas’ body today, and it’s been revealed that he died of heart disease.  Here is the AP report on the findings:

Autopsy results show that longtime Phillies‘ TV and radio broadcaster Harry Kalas died from heart disease.

A spokeswoman at the Washington D.C. chief medical examiner’s office said Kalas, who died Monday, had high blood pressure and suffered from atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The disease, in which plaque buildup restricts blood flow in arteries, is a major cause of heart attacks and strokes.

Kalas is survived by his wife and three sons, including one — Todd — who is a broadcaster for the Tampa Bay Rays. Funeral arrangements are pending.
