2018 Killebrew Award Winner - Jake Reed (Rochester Red Wings)

Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew is generally considered the greatest Twins player in their 58-year history in Minnesota. He was an imposing figure on the field, capable of altering a game with one swing of his mighty bat. Off the field, Killebrew was said to be one of the most genuinely compassionate men, respectful and helpful.

Following the Hall of Famer’s death in 2011, the Twins announced the initiation of the Harmon Killebrew Award for Community Service. One player from each of the four Twins full-season affiliates would be presented with the award in recognition of their work in their community.

Over the coming days, we’ll share with you the four 2018 recipients of the Harmon Killebrew Award for Community Service.

The only time I'd visited was shortly thereafter, so I'm way past due to see it again. I found a great park, especially impressive given its age. Want to visit with me? Great. Let's see what we find
