MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins' tribute to departed slugger Harmon Killebrew includes an old black-and-white photo that will rest beneath home plate at Target Field the rest of the season.

Killebrew died Tuesday at his Arizona home of cancer.

Later Tuesday, six members of the Target Field grounds crew slowly lifted home plate and slipped the plastic-encased photo of Killebrew under it, then replaced it. A team spokeswoman says the picture is believed to have been taken at Met Stadium in the 1960s.

It shows Killebrew winding up for a mighty swing.

The stadium's video board showed a photo of Killebrew with the years of his life, 1936-2011.
