Marvin Miller, one of the most important figures in 20th century American sports, has died. He was 95.
I had the opportunity to speak to Miller more than a dozen times when I was writing a book about Curt Flood and a few years later I visited his apartment to talk about the possibility of making a documentary about his life. He was gracious, bright, and funny.
I will compile all of the tributes to Miller later today or tomorrow so that you can get a full appreciation of the man and his lasting professional accomplishments.
Meanwhile, here is a Q&A I did with him talking about Flood for the Banter back in 2003.
