The Killer died this morning of cancer. While always an AL and division rival with the Senatots/Twins, how was it not possible to admire this guy? His forearms were massive and just seemed to play the game right.
I've got one memor to share. During Nolan Ryan's 3rd no-hitter (928/74) - Fan Appreciation Night, I was fortunate to attend , Killibrew came to bat in the 9th inning as a pinch hitter and Ryan walked him.
