Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew passed away peacefully on May 17 in hospice care at the age of 74, following his fight with esophageal cancer. We are all saddened by this news, and the Minnesota Twins invite our fans to share your thoughts and your memories of a true Major League Baseball legend and beloved community figure.
“Life is precious and time is a key element,” Harmon once said. “Let’s make every moment count and help those who have a greater need than our own.”
All of us know how sincerely he took his own words to heart. “No individual has ever meant more to the Minnesota Twins organization and millions of fans across Twins Territory than Harmon Killebrew,” Twins president Dave St. Peter said.
