This edition of pack breaks is dedicated to Harmon Killebrew, who announced today that he will no longer receive treatment for terminal cancer and has chosen to live out the remainder of his days in the comfort of home and family.

Although I am too young to have ever seen Harmon play, he is forever immortalized by his achievements on the field.

It's takes a lot of courage to accept one's fate and it is a fate we will all face in the end.  Let us hope that we can all face our fate with the same dignity of Harmon Killebrew.
