Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau provides The Pioneer Press with rave reviews for NHLPA leader Donald Fehr, who ran baseball’s union from 1986 to 2009.
“He’s a great communicator. He’s up-front, he puts it out there — what he thinks is best for the union — and he’s just a great leader,” Morneau said.
“He’s just a perfect union boss, I think.”
Morneau began playing in the big leagues in 2003, so he gained quite a bit of exposure to the way Fehr works.
Like many other onlookers, the British Columbia native (and Vancouver Canucks fan) doesn’t have much of an idea about when pucks will drop again.
“When? I don’t know,” Morneau said. “I’m a fan. It gives me something to do in the winter. Who knows? It’s not good for anybody, I know that.”
