I grew up watching Harmon play. A great player and a great gentleman of the game. God bless you Harmon and may your last days be peaceful.

We love you Harmon. You are the greatest! As a kid (now 47) you were my neighborhood's baseball idol. You've been a great asset to the state of MN. God bless you.

It's sad to read this. Harmon was one of my favorite players back in my youth and always seems to have been a really decent human being. My thoughts and prayers go out to Harmon and his family.
