Harmon Killebrew

On this date in 1971, Harmon Killebrew becomes the 10th player to hit 500 home runs.

"Harmon Killebrew told me to never chew gum at the plate. He said it makes your eyeballs bounce up and down." - Charlie Manuel

I thought it was " can't walk and chew gum at the same time" not hit.

Knowing how Charlie is he probably took that advice to heart and believes it to this day.
