An Ode to Harmon Killebrew

Down in the Twin Cities

Each game was but a fight

Home runs were his passion

But winning was his right

 

An MVP beyond his time

An all star through and through

Each time he stepped up to the plate

Fans knew just what to do

 

Gloves were up and eyes were pealed

To each pitch being thrown

Pitchers standing on the mound

Were scared down to the bone

 

He swung with strength beyond compare

Each pitch was one he’d choose

Then the fastball came right there

The opponent ready to lose

He took his mighty swing

And that just became that

A home run down the left field line

Was hit off Harmon’s bat

 

Known as the greatest Twin

To ever put on a cleat

There was never a pitcher

That Harmon couldn’t beat

 

Harmon Killebrew was inducted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame in 1984.  May our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.
