Blaine Miracle Field dedication honors former Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew
Former Minnesota Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew’s two greatest passions were remembered Saturday in Blaine during an emotional field renaming ceremony.
The Miracle League field at the Blaine Baseball Complex was renamed Killbrew Memorial Miracle League Field at a dedication attended by Killebrew’s wife, Nita, and oldest son, Cam.
“The Miracle League grabbed our heart and Harmon’s passion, because it included little kids and the sport of baseball,” Nita said.
The ceremony was conducted prior to the start of the Miracle of League of Minnesota Metro North’s season opening event at the Blaine Baseball Complex.
Killebrew helped with the drive to develop the first Miracle Field in Minnesota. See more in Editor Tim Hennagir’s ABC Newspapers story.
