More sad news about former Royals 1B/DH Harmon Killebrew. Killer was a member of the 1975 Royals, and is one of the nicest guys in baseball history. He has been battling esophagael cancer. He was inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1984, and at the time of his retirement, he was #5 on the all-time HR list. He was also the A.L.'s all-time righthanded HR hitter until Alex Rodriguez passed him.
