Marvin Miller was a great man for baseball and its players. After a long battle with cancer, he has passed away at the age of 95. Miller was the executive director of the MLBPA from 1966-1982. Under his leadership the average baseball players salary went from $10,000 to $329,000. He helped to transform the Players Association into one of the strongest unions in the USA.
