Rays Broadcaster Todd Kalas Gets Emotional When Reporting Don Zimmer's Death
Jake SilverSocial Media StaffJune 4, 2014

Baseball icon Don Zimmer passed away on Wednesday, June 4 at the age of 83. Having spent over six decades involved with professional baseball, Zimmer left his mark on masses of people throughout the years.

That much was crystal clear when Tampa Bay Rays broadcaster Todd Kalas was tasked with reporting Zimmer's death.

Kalas states that he has been covering the Rays for 17 years. Zimmer had worked with Tampa Bay over the past 10 years as a senior advisor. That's a lot of time to get to spend around a baseball legend. There is no question the league will feel his influence for a very long time.
