T«I.,M»r*»,U7« GREELEY (Colt.) TRIBUNE II Baseball players meet with Miller [ ffc e standings for purpose of gaining information Bjr FRED ROTHENBERG AP Sjwrti Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Spring i the linn of optimism in the bueball world, when there are no touei «nd everybody his a chance to have some fun in the sun. 1Tii« Katon there has been no spring, only a continuation of ·inter, and the protpectE for an immediate thaw in the situation appear about as likely as Commissioner Bowie Kuhn inviting Marvin Miller to toss out the first ball of the regular season. If there is a first ball. The owners and players are so wide apart as they head into their MUi negotiating session today that a group of some 25 veteran players has made its own pitch to Miller, executive director of the Players Association, t The players' meeting in St. Petersburg, CTa., called at the request of Cincinnati Reds slugger Johnny Bench, was for the purpose of gaining some information. "Maybe if we all get together we can make more progress on this thing," Bench said before the 15-minule meeting. "I want to find out what's really going on. "I have to admit I am confused. Besides, I want to know who's telling him (Miller) what to ask for. The majority of the guys down here are leaders on their clubs and I thought it would be a good idea if we got together and discussed the situation." At the conclusion of the session, held at Tom Seaver's unofficial practice camp, the players asked Seaver and Joe Torre of the New York Mets to ask Miller if he could set up a meeting between the 24 player representatives and the club owners. "They are concerned that the owners are not getting accurate reports," Miller said. "It (the request) was in the vein of 'Let's see if we can make sure there's communication.'" Miller promptly invited the 24 owners to meet with the association's executive board Thursday in Tampa.Fla. John J. Gaherin, the owners' representative, said the invitation would be discussed at today's session. Miller said the players getting involved in the actual negotiations was "a fine idea," but when asked if it would stimulate a solution to the unproductive negotiations, he said, "probably not, but when you're stuck, you try everything." The fact that there is a 26th bargaining session is about the only cause for optimism in the dispute that caused the owners to close the spring training camps indefinitely and had negotiators for both sides trading accusations after their last meeting on Friday. As Bench learned from Monday's meeting, the issue dividing the parties is a thorny one. "I thought it was just a problem they had in negotiating," Bench said. "But I can see now it's a complex legal problem." That legal dispute involves the issue of retroactivity, whether Miller can strip the players of their free agency rights won in a landmark arbitration case last December. The owners say Miller's role as exclusive bargaining agent for the players gives him the obligation to bargain for a new labor contract for all the players, even if that opens the union to potential damage suits. But Miller says he can't retroactively strip away the play- ers' rights to free agency, rights which are contained in every 1976 individual contract. Miller says that since the owners are the ones seeking changes in arbitrator Peter Seite' decision, they should assume the liability of damage suits. The owners have refused, saying it was Miller's responsibility. Miller says the vast majority of the players would not seek legal damages but there are some who would. Mike Marshall of the Los Angeles Dodgers is one player who already has announced his intention of suing the players association if it bargains away his right to free agency in the next two years. "Don't make Marshall the bad guy in this," said Seaver. "Others might sue, too. Mike is the only one who stood up at a meeting and said he would sue."
