Tell the world:

Harmon Killebrew on Newsfeed - Hall of Fame slugger Harmon Killebrew passed away today after a long battle with esophageal cancer. Currently he’s 11th all time in homeruns, was an RBI powerhouse and the only guy named Harmon in the hall of fame. On another note, I once put roast beef on an Italian sub and called it a RBI sandwich. It was delicious. But I digress… according to an urban legend I just fabricated, Harmon got his iconic last name after he killed a Milwaukee Brewer fan with a homerun. Afterwards people started calling him Harmon Killebrew and the name stuck. Yep that’s exactly how it happened. No, I just made that up I’m an idiot. My condolences go out to the Killebrew family. Harmon Killebrew you’ll be missed.One of the greatest Home Run hitters of all time lost his battle with cancer today. At just 72 years old Harmon Killebrew will be missed by baseball fans around the world.
