NEW YORK (AP) - Hall of Famers were among dozens of baseball players attending a memorial for former union head Marvin Miller, who helped them gain free agency in the 1970s and created the path to multimillion salaries.
Former stars Dave Winfield and Joe Morgan are among those scheduled to speak Monday night at New York University School of Law during a celebration of the life of Miller, who died in November at 95. Reggie Jackson, Keith Hernandez and MLB executive vice president Rob Manfred were in the audience with several current players, agent Scott Boras and the head of the Japanese baseball players' association.
A former economist for the United Steelworkers Union, Miller spent 16 1/2 years as executive director of the Major League Players Association, starting in 1966.
