Killebrew: 'A lot like Ernie Harwell'

Posted on: May 17, 2011 3:18 pm
 
The Twins family gathered at Target Field Tuesday afternoon, saddened by the death of Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew.

"He was a lot like Ernie Harwell," said ex-Twin and ex-Tiger Jack Morris.

Morris and Killebrew were among the ex-Twins who have become a more common sight around the team in recent years, thanks in large part to efforts by club president Dave St. Peter.

And Morris said Killebrew cared deeply about the team, right to the end.

"He was more worried about how [manager Ron Gardenhire] was holding up and whether Joe Mauer was going to play than he was about how he was doing," Morris said. "Some of the guys who went to see him last week said that, that he asked, 'How's Gardy doing? How's Mauer?'"

Although he was an All-Star and remembered as such, especially for his HR power, he is known and remembered even more for the man he was. I just do not think a greater tribute this side of heaven can be said for a person...that even though they may have tremendous accomplishments, who they were is even greater.

Rest in the Lord Harmon...

I feel at a loss for what to say here.  When I was a kid, I would read as much as I could about the major sports.  I really loved baseball for the numbers and the various characters of the game.  Killer was one of those characters.  He played the game right, was a leader on and off the field, and just was right for the game I loved so much during both good and bad times in my life.  I just wish as I ger older that those heroes of my youth would not pass.  I miss them so much because they were far too important to me.  Still are to this day.  I feel horrible for the family, but I am so glad he is no loger suffering.  Even at the end, he was trying to give instead of taking when he seriously need to so badly.  RIP Killer, RIP
