Harmon Killebrew Home Run Tribute Chair

The chair is still on the wall, and there's now a banner beside it, thanking Harmon for the memories.

The Mall of America was built on the site of a former baseball stadium, and a stadium seat marks the spot where slugger Harmon Killebrew launched the ballpark's longest-ever home run.

Metropolitan Stadium Home Plate 1956 - 1981.

Metropolitan Stadium Homeplate

Inside the Mall of America, in the Nickelodeon Universe, near the Rugrats Reptarmobiles... you will find where home plate was in the Metropolitan Stadium formerly on this site. This is where Harmon Killerbrew hit the longest HR ever in the stadium (the spectator chair is on the opposite side on the wall).

Harmon Killebrew Homer Tribute Chair

A red stadium chair is bolted on the wall above the Log Chute ride at the Mall of America. It marks the spot where Minnesota Twins baseball legend Harmon Killebrew smacked a homer -- 522 feet -- into the second deck seats on June 3, 1967. It was the longest home run ever hit in Metropolitan Stadium. The stadium was demolished in 1981, and the chair monument to his right-handed slugging prowess stood at the shopping center at this spot before it too was leveled to make way for the mega-mall in 1992.

A plaque in the floor also marks the location of the Metropolitan Home Plate (1956-1981).

Killebrew, 74, died on May 17, 2011.
