Players who were sent to the minors between July 28, 1994, when the strike date was announced, and the beginning of the strike can buy back the service time for the remainder of the 1994 season by returning the minor-league salaries they received during the strike; 60 of 70 players affected did so.
A baseball team which asked a player to take a pay cut in mid-contract and then released the player when he refused would probably be ordered by an arbitrator to pay the rest of the contract.) The release of many players for cap reasons has angered many veterans.
The baseball players could have done the same to overturn the imposed cap if anti-trust law were imposed; the union and owners have agreed to lobby Congress to overturn it with respect to labor relations.

 Current Online | Ken Burns' Baseball, 1994
Baseball is likely to give birth to a mini-industry of other merchandise and memorabilia, as The Civil War did.
On the basis of the half-hour "Making of Baseball" preview of the series, Washington Post critic at-large Jonathan Yardley opined in a recent column that Burns "has allowed self-infatuation to cloud his judgment" by making such a long series, and that adoring PBS executives likewise had lost their minds.
Burns' premise that supports such a great devotion of airtime is that baseball is a microcosm of the American experience, reflecting the sweep of the nation's history.

 Who Would Have Won in 1994? - Baseball Fever
We all remember how the 1994 postseason was obliterated by the strike, but I've always wondered who would have won the World Series that year had it been played as it should have been.
The choices on the poll are the 8 teams who would have been in the postseason, based on the standings from the last day of the season.
Admittedly, I would have really liked to have seen the Braves win it in 1994, but as I recall, they had one of their weaker bullpens that year, and that weakness became more and more pronounced as the season wore on.

If you are not a fan of New York baseball--as in Yankees, Dodgers and Giants--then this "inning" of Ken Burns' classic documentary series on "Baseball" is not for you because those three teams dominate this episode the way they dominated the game in the 1950's.
For me, "The Capital of Baseball" is where my memories and the history of baseball finally start to overlap, since I actually saw Mantle, Mays and Aaron play.
But watching "Baseball" on opening day is a personal rite of spring with me, and even if the game is over at this place, you have to stick around until the game is actually over.

 CNN Transcript - CNN Today: CNN 20: 1994 Baseball Strike, September 14, 1994 - September 14, 2000
DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: The day that Bud Selig said that there was going to be no more baseball, that the season was over, I think there was just a sense of amazement, of disappointment, that fans couldn't believe it had actually come to this.
KAGAN: Baseball is one of the things you're supposed to be able to rely on.
And for the players, for the owners, for the league not to be able to agree on how they were going to get it together, basically to play a child's game, to ruin a season over money was very disappointing and very defeating.
