Dodger Fans, in order to look towards the future, you must respect the past. Despite never being a Dodger, Harmon Killebrew is one of the Greatest home run hitters of all time. Today it was announced that he would enter the hospice program after a long struggle with cancer.
Killebrew, hit 573 career home runs and was known as one of the greatest twins of all time. He actually hit a home run against Don Drysdale in the 1965 World Series.
Below is a little ode to Harmon Killebrew. While I am not a poet, I thought that the Greatest slugger in Twins history should have some dedication towards him.
Harmon at the Plate:
The depths of power had no limit
When he came up to bat
For it was a pitcher against an army
An army brewed to kill
There would be no pitcher ever safe
His at bats would set the pace
You would find him at the plate
With runners on each base
Fans buying beer
Would drop it in a snap
For when the announcer said
Harmon Killebrew was up at bat
