Twins saying goodbye to 'Killer' in style

May 26, 2011 - Per Peterson
The Twins might not be doing much right on the field this year — they have the worst record in baseball — but once again, they are proving they have the classiest professional sports organization in the state. Today, Harmon Killebrew day as declared by Gov. Mark Dayton, the Twins and their legions of fans will have one last chance to say good-bye to their fallen hero with a memorial service at Target Field, which will be open to the public. The Twins are having a progressive ceremony that starts at the Mall of America, the site of the old Metropolitan Stadium where Killebrew hit so many memorable homers. From there, it be off to Target Field. The Twins do so much for their community and the state and always honor their past in style. By the way, this year's team is paying what might be the highest tribute to the late Hall of Fame slugger — they're not playing.
