Baseball Strike Day 8

August 19, 1994

News of the day

Baseball's second-longest strike ended its first week with a glimmer of hope.

Federal mediators said yesterday that talks will resume under their supervision. A five-man delegation of owners will go the table along with Richard Ravitch, management's negotiator since bargaining began 19 months ago.

Games lost

Twelve games were canceled yesterday. The total number missed is 86.

Quote

"When the Blue Jays are selling tickets, they have eight windows open, but when it's time to give us our money back, only two are open. I have been the biggest Blue Jay fan since Day 1, but I've had it."

Anthony Indovina, one of several Blue Jays fans who had to wait up to 90 minutes to get ticket refunds.
