Harmon Killebrew's bronze statue outside Target Field was a stopping point for countless Twins fans on their way into the game on Friday, after the Hall of Fame slugger announced earlier in the day that he was entering hospice care, with his five-month battle with esophageal cancer 'coming to an end.'
573 career home runs have him currently at 11th on the list. He'd still be in the top ten if (at least) three juicers (A-Rod, Sosa, McGwire) didn't cheat their way ahead of him. He'll be remembered as one of the best sluggers in the history of the game.
