You've got to read this book.
the game of baseball, when you buy this book it will really clear up a lot of misunderstanding
about the beginning of real negotiation with union the owners and players.
Mr. Miller is definitely to be commended by baseball players and other professional players for bringing them from exploitation to fair market value...with that said, he will never be forgiven by the Owners and thus will never enter the Hall of Fame in his life time...so petty on the owners part...
