  • Union exec Marvin Miller elected to Baseball Hall of Fame

Miller is the architect of baseball's free-agency system, a union leader who brought MLB its first collective bargaining agreement and a man whose legacy has been wrestled before with Hall of Fame voters. It was surprising both then and now that Simmons' career didn't make much of an impact on the writers, given that he has always been regarded as one of the best-hitting catchers in the history of the sport. Over Simmons' 13 seasons with the Cardinals, five seasons with the Brewers, and three seasons with the Braves, he accumulated eight All-Star appearances.

Miller, who died at age 95 in 2012, led the Major League Baseball Players Association from 1966-82, a time when players gained the right to free agency after six seasons of big league service, to salary arbitration and to grievance arbitration.

Both were elected as part of Modern Era ballot, one of the Hall of Fame's annual committee votes that re-examines players.

Tony Clark, the current head of the players union, said of Miller's election: "Players are pleased that Marvin will now take his rightful and long overdue place in the Hall of Fame in recognition of the monumental and positive impact he had on our game and our industry".

Pati Patni Aur Woh Movie Leaked Online By Tamilrockers
It is a remake of the 1978 film with the same name and also features Aparshakti Khurrana in a supporting role. This Friday (December 6) saw two big movies Pati Patni Aur Woh and Panipat clashing at the box-office.

They will be inducted into Cooperstown during ceremonies on July 26 along with any players chosen next month by the Baseball Writers' Association of America from a ballot headed by former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter. While some of the owners and executives who populated various veterans committees over the years weren't fans of how Miller built and strengthened the MLBPA, there is little doubt that Miller is one of the most influential figures in baseball history. Within two years of being hired to run the MLBPA, Miller overcame skepticism within his own ranks and opposition from owners to forge a CBA that raised baseball's minimum wage from $6,000 to $10,000.

The Modern Era ballot is one of the Hall of Fame's veteran committees, which in recent years were re-categorized by era and now rotate annually. This vote covered 1970-1987 and included nine players - Dwight Evans, Steve Garvey, Tommy John, Don Mattingly, Thurman Munson, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Simmons and Lou Whitaker - plus Miller. Simmons fell only a single vote short of the twelve required for entry into Cooperstown (Miller was also on that 2017 ballot, receiving seven votes).

Among the members of the 16-member committee were George Brett, Rod Carew, Dennis Eckersley, Eddie Murray, Ozzie Smith, Robin Yount, Sandy Alderson, Dave Dombrowski, Walt Jocketty, Doug Melvin and Terry Ryan.
