First my sincere condolences to your family, for your loss of a great man.
I worked, briefly, for Marvin as a very young person at major league baseball players association and of course, I learned much about unions and tennis!
Marvin was a thinking person who believed in unions and creating a more level playing field for the players through his wise vision, determination and lovely sense of humour.
I recall how we went together (he invited me to join him) to throw the ball in for the opening of the baseball season and then after an appropriate interval we left to watch tennis matches in a private club on the upper east side. He used to play tennis and truly loved it. But his players of baseball meant the world to him as a union man and he fought for them with vigor and created much to give them opportunity.
His ethical wisdom and positive point of view made him well loved by all who were lucky enough to know him and work with him.
God bless you Marvin Miller.

To Susan & Peter,
I met your Dad at the SABR Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004. Your Mother was with him as they were going to Kentucky to visit family after the convention.
Prior to the convention when people heard Marvin Miller was the guest of honor and the featured speaker the entire SABR organization was looking forward to Marvin Miller's appearance. SABR members could not believe that our chapter (through the efforts of Paul Herbert and others) could get Marvin Miller to attend.
All I can tell you is that when Marvin Miller walked into the Reception Hall (that was filled to capacity) and took his place at the head table their was an electricity that filled the air. Everyone knew that they were in the same room as someone special. Marvin Miller held the attendees in the palm of his hand as he gave a talk that was second to known. And he did it with no notes. After he was done with his talk everyone stood and gave him a standing ovation.
Marvin Miller was someone special and not only the baseball world but the entire world lost a true American Icon when Marvin Miller died.
May his memory be for a blessing.
