Marvin Miller, 1917-2012: Miller, the most important figure in the MLBPA's history, died today at 95. He helped Curt Flood challenge the reserve clause, which led to free agency and the wonderfully peaceful sports labor situation we have today.

A comment from Baseball Think Factory:
Having [Bowie] Kuhn in the Hall and [Marvin] Miller out is like giving Michael Spinks the heavyweight championship for being knocked out in seconds by Mike Tyson.
