Marvin Miller, the longtime executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, died Tuesday at the age of 95.
While not a lawyer himself, he was a significant contributor to the area of sports and labor law, and certainly one of the most significant figures in baseball history. His legacy includes eliminating baseball’s reserve clause, thereby winning free agency for the players.
