Today, Twins great Harmon Killebrew died from leukemia. The “Killer” was one of the Twins greats who was humble and a leader on the baseball field. Killebrew was 74 years old. Killebrew hit 573 home runs in his career, (11th most in baseball history,) and is a Hall of Famer. Killebrew wore the number three for the Twins and the Twins still admire and thank him for what he did for them. Killebrew was the man at old Metropolitan Stadium in Minneapolis, where he would smash home runs over the fence. He was MVP in 1969, where he hit 49 home runs, and had 140 RBIs.
Killebrew now has a street in Minneapolis named Killebrew Drive, and most Twins fans will always remember the great and legendary Harmon Killebrew. I know I will.
