RIP: Harmon Killebrew

A legend passed away today. Harmon Killebrew lost his fight with cancer at the age of 74 this morning and the world not only lost a terrific baseball player but a terrific human being as well. There a countless stories of how nice and down to earth Killebrew was. He is an icon in the city of Minnesota and in Major League Baseball as well. His stats are eye popping, 573 home runs (11th all time) 11 all star nods, and an American League MVP award in 1969. The world will never be the same without "Killer". Thanks for the memories Mr. Killebrew, and thanks for appreciating all those fans who looked up to you and the game, you will never be forgotten.
