One of the greats. My first HB bat had his signature.
The Wash Post has a good obit in today's paper: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/harmon-killebrew-hall-of-fame-baseball-slugger-dies-at-74/2011/05/17/AFf9jA6G_story.html
Thanks George. Here's a more manageable URL for the link:http://tinyurl.com/killebrew-death
George:Great writeup. I wonder what happens when you google Shirley Povich of the Washing Post. What a classic sports writer. I spent time in DC at RFK (What a Dung heap)watching the Senators, but that was a different team. As a Dodger fan I enamored with them because at that time they had another slugger of Dodger fame... Frank Howard. He was similar in stature to the Killer not quite as prolithic.
