Dick Moss Interview  The Biz of Baseball will shortly be publishing an interview with the man who was Marvin Miller's right-hand man, one of the first super agents, and the man who represented Steve Howe during his arbitration hearing regarding his lifetime ban from baseball due to drug abuse.

That man is Dick Moss, the former General Counsel for the MLB Players Association at it's most turbulent time.

Moss dealt with all collective bargaining negotiations and contract administration matters. He tried all the union's grievance arbitration cases, including in 1975 the Messersmith case which ended the Reserve Clause and created free agency for the players. He was also the union's lawyer in all of it's court litigation, most notably the Curt Flood case which was ultimately decided in the U.S. Supreme Court. He is one of the innovators of baseball's salary arbitration system, and tried, as the union's General Counsel, the first several cases for players who could not afford or did not trust outside representation.

This extensive interview will be published shortly on The Biz of Baseball, so check back often.
