Harmon Killebrew Dies, Baseball World Mourns

New, comment
Harmon Killebrew died this morning at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., the Hall of Fame just announced.

The sad news rolled in this morning as Twins, Major League Baseball, and the world loses one of its greatest. The world is a lesser place today than it was yesterday, but we're better for having Harmon in it while we did.

It was only days ago that the announcement came that he would no longer fight cancer and would instead enter hospice care. Still, the news hits the baseball world hard. Here are some reactions via twitter:

Rest in peace, Harmon Killebrew. - Ken Rosenthal
Even with the advance warning, news of Harmon Killebrew's death today still hit me hard. RIP to a great player and gentleman. - Larry Stone, Seattle Times
Rest in peace Mr Killebrew - Nick Cafardo, Boston Globe
