Chester Simerly from St. Louis, MO asks:
Who were the founding fathers of the Major League Baseball Umpire Association?
The Major League Baseball Umpire's Association was first officionally recognized in 1970 when the umpires held a one day strike during the league championship series. They were required to recognize the association in order to negotiate a labor contract. So to answer your question: the founders of the MLUA were the umpires who participated in that strike and prompted the recognition of the association.
