How MLB players should commemorate Labor Day

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

Labor Day is about honoring the innumerable contributions of American workers, but major-league players -- a subset of workers afforded great rewards by the labor movement -- are surprisingly mute on the subject of a day that should have tremendous significance for them.

On that front, here's an idea that I wholeheartedly endorse ...

If the Hall of Fame won't honor the man who dragged baseball into modernity and made it a better game, then perhaps the players, the primary beneficiaries of Miller's and the MLBPA's pioneering efforts, should take up the cause in this exceedingly small way.

Take note, big-league ballplayers.
