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.

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.
