No Progress In Baseball Talks

August 09, 1994

Negotiations resumed yesterday between representatives of the baseball players and owners, but no movement occurred.

In fact, with three days left before Friday's strike deadline, the two sides didn't even address the sticking point in the talks -- the owners' proposal to institute a salary cap.

"No progress was made on the critical economic issue," owners negotiator Richard Ravitch said.

Meanwhile, the Orioles must consider their progress. And if there is a strike, columnist Ken Rosenthal says, the Orioles should have a new manager whenever play resumes.
