The Modern Baseball Era Committee considers individuals who contributed to baseball from 1970 through 1987 and who are no longer eligible via the writers' election process. Miller died at age 95 in 2012. This year's panel consisted of, as always, a mixture of former players, executives, owners, journalists, and historians - Sandy Alderson, George Brett, Rod Carew, Bill Center, Dave Dombrowski, Dennis Eckersley, David Glass, Steve Hirdt, Walt Jocketty, Doug Melvin, Eddie Murray, Jack O'Connell, Tracy Ringolsby, Terry Ryan, Ozzie Smith, and Robin Yount.
To be elected, nominees had to receive votes from 12 of the 16 committee members.
Miller revolutionized the player's union by creating MLB's free agency which included raising the average salary from $19,000 to over $240,000 during his remarkable tenure (the average Major League Baseball salary is now over $4 million). Miller earned 75 percent of the vote, the exact amount needed for entry into the Hall of Fame. These eight players will again be eligible for consideration during the next Modern Era vote in December 2022. Simmons was on this same ballot in 2017 and missed election by one vote.

Miller is the architect of baseball's free-agency system, a union leader who brought MLB its first collective bargaining agreement and a man whose legacy has been wrestled before with Hall of Fame voters. He helped players gain the right to free agency after six seasons of big league service, to salary arbitration and to grievance arbitration.
