Dave Winfield joins MLBPA staff

First union exec in the Hall Of Fame.

Winfield spent 15 of his 22 big league seasons as a player representative. He also served as a founding member of the advisory board of the Major League Baseball Players Trust, which was founded in 1996.

“As a former union leader, I’m thrilled to be joining the ranks of the most accomplished and respected sports union in the country to help provide a generational link and historical perspective to today’s players,” said Winfield in a statement Thursday.

Excellent. Dave was always involved and thoughtful regarding player-management issues during and after his career.

Somewhere Mike Weiner is smiling. He always wanted Dave on staff.
