Harmon Killebrew, Baseball Hall of Fame Member, Dies at 74

Harmon Killebrew, the Hall-of-Famer beloved by many, died this morning at the age of 74 after a battle with esophageal cancer. He announced last week that he would be ending treatment for his cancer as it was incurable.

Nicknamed "Killer", he was an 11-time All-Star in 22 seasons and named AL MVP in 1969 after leading the AL in home runs, RBI's, on-base percentage, walks and intentional walks. He played most of his career with the Minnesota Twins/Washington Senators and spent his last season with the Kansas City Royals.

When he retired from the game, Killebrew was second-overall in AL home runs (behind Babe Ruth). He currently ranks 11th overall in MLB history with 573 career home runs. In addition to his many contributions to the game, Killebrew is believed to be the inspiration behind the current MLB logo. He was inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1984.
