Looking back, I still can't believe it happened. A World Series canceled? A season ending soon and starting late the next year? How could this be? I was twelve when the strike happened, and even though everyone was predicting it would happen, I was sure the people in baseball would figure something out. Surely they wouldn't let the season be canceled. Not a great season like this. Had they seen what players were doing? Griffey, Thomas, Bagwell, and Matt Williams had outside shots at breaking Maris's record. Williams, I believe, was on pace for 61. Tony Gwynn was chasing .400. The Montreal Expos had the best record in baseball! Being an Astros fan, that's not exactly what I wanted, but that strike probably destroyed baseball in Montreal. I understand that there were strikes in 1972 and 1981, but none as damaging to the game as this one.
