I was sad to hear about the passing of Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew today at the age of 74 from esophageal cancer. Nicknamed “Killer” for the way he would destroy baseballs pitched to him, Killebrew hit 573 career home runs. Former Twins teammate Tommy John called him “one of the nicest, most compassionate guys I ever met in baseball.” ESPN columnist Jim Caple wrote a great piece on Killebrew and it’s a must read.
