My heartfelt condolences to the Killebrew family.Mr.Killebrew was bigger than Babe Ruth to this kid back in the 60's.After games at the Met,we'd wait in the parking lot with a "good" ball bought at Vitales prior the game,pouncing on the players as they walked to their cars for autographs.Harmon Killebrew gave us his time with the patience of the saints.He'd ask where us "fellas played ball" and such small talk.What a class act he was, and has remained such his entire life.His work with such vacant lot all stars continues today.Baseball in Minnesota would not be what it is without this quiet,humble man.A true champion for all to revere.

Killebrew is the gold standard for Twins baseball. Any tribute is deserved.

Not a twin fan but a Killebrew fan. This is someone kids should emulate. One of the vivid baseball memories of my child hood was Harmon crushing a ball in Fenway that went over the centerfield wall and hit the back wall. This ball, I have no doubt, would have traveled 500 feet or more. He could hit a baseball! Here's to you KILLER!!! You're one of the best!
