The longtime USA Today columnist explains why some MLB Hall of Famers consider the former Union Head Miller as the most important sports figure since Jackie Robinson: "It’s much more than the money, even though people talked about how much money the players were making, $7.5 billion of the industry last year, but, besides the money, the safety issues. Talking to Joe Morgan today, a Hall of Famer, and he said people forget about the safety issues. There wasn’t padding on the outfield walls before (Miller) came in. Transportation’s much better, so he improved the game in the long haul. It would have been very interesting to see if he came around 20-25 years later, how much his vision would have affected. There’s people like Joe Morgan and Reggie Jackson that believe he was the most important sports figure since Jackie Robinson, not just for baseball, but all of sports."
