Happy Birthday Harmon Killebrew!!!
Harmon Killebrew was a baseball superstar that played in a city that never quite got the attention of other major cities. And because of that, Killebrew was kind of like a secret.
But what was not a secret was the fact that Killebrew could slug home runs at the same rate, and oftentimes greater, than the sport’s best sluggers.
Amazingly, Killebrew seemed to get better with age as he collected more home runs in the second half of his career than he did in the first half. In 22 years, the Hall of Famer hit 573 round-trippers. He currently sits in 11th place on the all-time list.
Happy Birthday Mr. Killebrew!! Rest In Peace.
