|The Killebrew statue got the swing right|
but not the face.
The plaque reads:
From the book The Power Hitters
by Donald Honig
"If ever anyone yielded a blunt instrument
at home plate, it was Harmon Killebrew.
There was nothing subtle about the Idaho
strong boy. It was always his intention to
mash a pitched ball as far as he could."
"Yielded" isn't the right word. "Wielded" is. But the sense of the quote — and the basic thrust of the statue — is dead on.
