Harmon Killebrew, RIP

Former Washington Senators star Harmon Killebrew died today in Scottsdale, Ariz., at the age of 74. Sure, he spent most of his career with the Minnesota Twins, after the Senators abandoned the District, but he first made a splash at Griffith Stadium.

In honor of D.C. baseball history, here's an episode of Home Run Derby that originally aired on Jan. 30, 1960, featuring Killebrew facing off against Mickey Mantle.
