How MLB players should commemorate Labor Day
It tends to be an overlooked holiday on the baseball calendar, but ballplayers should try to change that.
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 ...
@jonbernhardt Players' union should insist on wearing a Marvin Miller patch on Labor Day.— ursus arctos (@ursus_arctos59) September 1, 2014
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.
