We mourn the passing of Hall of Famer and Twins icon Harmon Killebrew, who died today at the age of 74.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

Last week, we learned that Killebrew, who had been fighting esophageal cancer, had terminated cancer treatment and entered hospice care. The statement he released reflected the class with which Killebrew lived his life and why he was so beloved by Twins fans for his decades as a player with the franchise, and later as a broadcaster.

Killebrew, a member of baseball's Hall of Fame, hit 573 home runs in a 22-year major league career, played primarily with the Twins and their predecessor franchise as the Washington Senators from 1956-74, and one final year with the Kansas City Royals in 1975.
