Baseball Strike Day 15

August 26, 1994

News of the day

Negotiations between striking players and baseball owners broke off. No new talks were scheduled, dimming prospects that mediators can help end the 2-week-old walkout quickly.

"People didn't walk out saying: 'We'll never talk to you again,' " union director Donald Fehr said after the session broke off. "But clearly there was nothing else to say."

Richard Ravitch, lead negotiator for the owners, said that when talks resume, they may involve smaller delegations from each side.

Games lost

Twelve games were canceled yesterday. The total number missed is 181.
