Harmon Killebrew Memorial And Funeral Services Planned

Harmon Killebrew, the Twins Hall of Fame slugger, who passed away yesterday at the age of 74, will be honored by memorial and funeral services and also by the Twins at Target Field, according to mlb.com.

Killebrew last lived in the Phoenix area, and there will be a funeral service for him at Christ's Church of the Valley in Peoria, Ariz. on Friday at 10 a.m. MST. This service will be open to the public. Then, Killebrew's family will have a private burial service for him in his hometown of Payette, Idaho, where he will be laid to rest on Monday.

The Twins will honor their greatest player in an on-field ceremony Thursday night at Target Field in Minneapolis, also open to the public. The Twins are on the road until next Monday and it would seem likely that they will do something else to honor Killebrew when they return from their current road trip.
