Praying for Harmon Killebrew @BaseballHall @Twins @MLB:

Dear Harmon,

On behalf of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the baseball family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.  For the millions of fans who saw you slug 573 home runs throughout your storied career, you exemplified baseball at its best.  For the millions of youngsters who copied your swing, or more importantly your demeanor off of the field, you exemplified class.  And like those many millions of people who are your fans, I am a fan too, and am hoping and praying for you.

You were one of the greatest to ever put on a baseball uniform.  You were a hitter’s hitter, a consummate teammate as the cornerstone of the Twins franchise, and most importantly a great person.  When I was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame, I could not believe that my name was being mentioned with the likes of Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio and Harmon Killebrew.

I love you, Harmon.  May God watch over you and grant you comfort and peace.

Your friend,

Tom Lasorda

Hall of Fame 8-3-97
