Harmon
Killebrew

We were truly blessed to have shared company with the "Greatest" Twin of all - Harmon Killebrew.  Harmon was a camp favorite and his sincere and humble demeanor endeared him to everyone associated with the camp.  During the 2012 camp we were thrilled to have Harmon's son Cam with us for camp week and his comments to the camp at our Friday night banquet, where we paid tribute to Harmon, were truly unforgettable. 

Harmon's raw power and monumental home run success made him known as one of the hardest hitting and most dangerous hitters in the game.  Killebrew played 22 years in the big leagues signing with the Washington Senators right out of highschool at the age of 17.  Withe Senators move to Minnesota in 1961, Harmon's talents quickly flourished.  While playing with the Twins, he 48 homers in 1962, 45 in 1963, and 49 in 1964.  While listed as a first baseman, "Killer" could typically be found on third base, first base or in the outfield.  His last big production year came in 1970 when he led the Twins to the Western Division title by hitting 41 round trippers.  During the course of his career, he 40 or more homeruns in 8 different seasons.  In 1969 he recoreded 49 homers and was named the American League's Most Valuable Player.  For his career he 573 homeruns and ranks third all time behind Babe Ruth and Ralph Kinner in home run percentage with a 7.0.  Eleven times he was named to the American League All-Star Team adn in 1984 became the first Minnesota Twin to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of  Fame in Cooperstown.
