MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins will hold a public memorial service for Harmon Killebrew at Target Field next week, after the Hall of Fame slugger’s funeral in Arizona.

The Twins made the announcement on Wednesday, the day after Killebrew died at 74 from esophageal cancer.

Killebrew’s funeral is open to the public and set for Friday morning at Christ’s Church of the Valley in Peoria, Ariz. The family has scheduled a private burial service for Monday in Killebrew’s hometown of Payette, Idaho.

The Twins will hold a memorial at their ballpark in Minneapolis on May 26 to honor the popular, affable player who hit 573 home runs in 22 seasons, good for 11th on baseball’s all-time list.
