    He was my favorite Minnesota Twin of all time, just ahead of Rod Carew.

    He'll forever be linked with Yaz.

    Harmon was great.  This is a sad day.  Players now should use his example and STOP DIPPING AND CHEWING.  The Sox and Yanks have a ton of guys who will pay the price down the road.  Players think it can never happen to them.  They are wrong.

    HK was a monster at the plate. His homers over The Wall at Fenway made others' look like pop ups.

    Harmon Killebrew remains one the biggest sports icons of my life.
    Summer of '67...best summer of my life. Season tickets...watched Killebrew and Yaz go down to the wire for the HR lead. Each hit their 44th in the next-to-last game. Neither gets a HR in the last game of the year, as Yaz gets the last Triple Crown in MLB (to date).
    Last gae of the season - Yaz goes 4-4 w 2 RBI's and the Sox finish 1 game ahead of Killebrew's Twins and the Detroit Tigers for the AL pennant - though the Sox had to wait for the Angels to beat the Tigers on the West Coast, avoiding a one game Sox/Tigers playoff game.
    What summer for a 14 year old Sox fanatic!

    Anybody who is a fan of the game and saw Harmon play should appreciate how great a player he was and a what a great contribution he made to the game both as a player and as a gentleman.  Rest in peace, Harmon.

    little known, though far, far less flamboyantly, Killer was the Godfather of pimpin' after hitting a bomb....Tongue out
