Baseball Strike Day 18

August 29, 1994

News of the day

Like teen-agers before the high school prom, baseball players and owners spent the weekend waiting for the other to call.

"There's nothing going on," Brewers owner Bud Selig said.

Union director Donald Fehr said: "I've had no contact."

No talks are scheduled, though both sides say that they expect to meet this week.

Games lost

Fourteen games were canceled yesterday. The total number missed is 223, nearly 10 percent of the season.

Quote

"I'm no major feminist, but I do believe that if we women could sit at the table, there would be no war. Because we'd get things done, so we could get to the nail salon sooner. We have more important things to take care of." -- Morganna, the Kissing Bandit
