1971 HEADLINE: Harmon Killebrew Joins The ‘500 Home Run Club’

On this day in 1971 Harmon Killebrew crushed the 500th home run of his big league career.

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 Anniversary Mr. Killebrew!!!
