More Faye Vincent
Baseball Musings posts an excerpt from an interesting commencement speech – an unusual combination of words – given by former MLB commisssioner Faye Vincent. Vincent acknowledges that he failed in his primary endeavor, a futile attempt to forge consensus between players and owners. With the owners hell-bent on breaking the union, war was inevitable, regardless who the commisioner was. The position of commissioner during that period was doomed to be a sad, thankless one.
