Baseball Strike Day 23

September 03, 1994

News of the day

Lawyers for players and owners planned no talks during the Labor Day weekend, the first without major-league baseball since the holiday began in 1894. Because the Jewish New Year begins Monday night, no talks are expected until Wednesday at the earliest.

Games lost

Fifteen games were canceled yesterday. The total number missed is 284. Only 385 games remain on the schedule.

"I knew this baseball strike would be a particularly bitter strike when I heard that most Rotisserie League owners refused to open their books." -- Los Angeles Daily News columnist Michael Ventre
