I just saw the news a few minutes ago that Harmon Killebrew died today from esophogeal cancer and thought I'd re-post this entry and illustration I did from June, 2009 as a tribute:
"Harmon Killebrew was a feared power hitter with the nicknames "Killer" and "Hammerin' Harmon." Despite his "Killer" nickname and his powerful stocky build, Killebrew was in fact a quiet, kind man who didn't really join in with his partying teammates. Asked by reporters what he liked to do for fun, Killebrew replied, "Well, I like to wash dishes, I guess."
I like Harmon.
