This week is Twins’ week with our podcast featuring the Minnesota Twins being released on Friday, May 27th.  On May 17th, Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew passed away.  During our podcast Ed Kasputis, Creative Director of Baseball PhD will be interviewing baseball researcher, Stew Thornley about the legacy of Harmon Killebrew.

“I saw Harmon Killebrew play in the first Major League game that I ever attended,” said Ed Kasputis.  “In my opinion, Killebrew was the greatest right handed hitter of my youth.  While he was only 5’11” he played like a giant.”

His Nickname was “Killer”
