Baseball has one of the best fan experience in sports, and 20 years ago today that was taken away from the people that love it the most. Strikes and lockouts have not been a rarity in the professional sports world, but there is one that many will not forget. The 1994 Major League Baseball Players strike, which led the sport to lose its entire postseason due to a labour dispute, the first time that happened in a North American sports league. One of the main disputes that caused the Players to walk off the job was that the Owners wanted to install a salary cap, while the players opposed the idea. That disagreement plus a few others, led to a 232-day strike, cancelling not only the remainder of the regular season but also the postseason. The Montreal Expos were arguably the team that suffered the most; they had the best record in baseball, 74-40, despite having the second lowest payroll. They were six games ahead of the Atlanta Braves in the National League East Division when the season came to a halt. Success in strike years was not something new for the Expos, the only time the team punched their ticket to the playoffs was in 1981, during the last significant players strike. Following the resumption of the sport, the Expos moved a lot of their star players, which lead to an even bigger erosion of the fan base. Montreal was not the only market hit hard by the stoppage, many fans around the league decided to opt out of games when the players returned to the field. Attendance was at an all-time low, dropping 20% from the previous season. In 1994, prior to the strike, the average attendance was 31,256 in 1,600 games, while in 2,016 regular season games of the 1995 season they drew an average of 25,008 fans. Interest in the game was slow to return until the 1998 season when Chicago Cubs outfielder Sammy Sosa and St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Mark McGwire started hitting home runs at record paces. The two sluggers may be the reason the love for baseball returned, their chase for the all-time single season home-run record grabbed the attention of former and current die-hard fans as well as casual viewers. The two players were looking to surpass New York Yankee Roger Maris record of 61 homers which he hit during the 1961 season. Both men had a competitive drive, but their personalities and newly formed friendship also helped them grab peoples attention. Maris single season record fell that year as Mark McGwire finished with 70 home runs and Sammy Sosa ended the season with 66 round trippers and though those marks have since been cast into doubt, there is no question about the lasting effect their work that season had on restoring fans of the game. Its been 20 years since the strike, how long did it take you to forgive baseball and come back? As always its Your! Call. Jonathan Allen Redskins Jersey . Raonic, the No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., had 18 aces in the match. He needed one hour 39 minutes to complete the victory. Washington Redskins Jerseys . Toronto ended an 0-4-0 skid with Sundays shootout win over visiting New Jersey, but the club could have a difficult time making it two victories in a row tonight.

Alex Smith Jersey .55 million euros (US$18.6 million) to Spanish tax authorities on Monday to cover any potential irregularities in its signing of Neymar, all the while maintaining its innocence of the fraud charges levied against it.Francesco Guidolin wants Swansea to treat their last seven games of the season like finals despite a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa easing their relegation worries. Federico Fernandez scored the only goal as the game finished 1-0 to take Swansea to 36 points, 11 clear of the bottom three.However, Guidolin is keen to ensure that he players to not ease off before the end of the campaign and assume that the job is done. Norwich won and the relegation zone is far but we have to play with freedom now but like a final, he told Sky Sports.This evening we didnt play very well in the first half but it was like a final game and we won. Now for the seven games in the last weeks of this season we have to play like a final game.The Italian was also full of praise for the impact of Leon Britton and the role he played in the teams improved second half showing after coming on as a half-time substitute.I know this situation and in the second half we needed a player like Leon to win the ball, take the second balls and to play the first pass right, Guidolin added. He played very, very well and the whole team was improved.Guidolin was also keen to stress the importance the result could have on Swansea in the long-term. Swanseas Leon Britton told Saturday Night Football that he was delighted with his sides 1-0 win over Aston Villa This is the match I was waiting for, a nervous match and we didnt play well in the first half but in the second half we improved, Guidolin said.ddddddddddddI think at the end it is a good victory, three points, very important and the most important thing is for the future and not having to play a game in this situation.Our season has been down, up, down, up and in the last part of the season we need points. It is important for the club and the team for the future to have the possibility to play without nerves but simple, easy - it is better for our players, this club and for me, as well!
