Harmon Killebrew, the face of the Minnesota Twins franchise, passed away this morning after a bout with esophageal cancer at the age of 74.

Killebrew ranks 11th all time in home runs with 573 during a 22-year career.

Killebrew was named the American League Most Valuable Player in 1969 after hitting 49 home runs and driving in 140.

Bloomington Stadium, where the Twins played while Killebrew was active, is now the site of the Mall of the Americas.  There is a chair sticking out of one of the walls at the Mall a couple of stories high, commemorating where Killebrew’s 500th career home run landed.

Killebrew announced just last week that he was ceasing cancer treatments.
