But note: this is not a “here’s what happened in 1994” post. Rather, it’s 4,231 words about why the 94-95 strike happened in the first place. A strike that is impossible to understand unless you understand the 30+ years which came before it. A strike which, even if it happened 25 years ago, will directly inform that which happens in baseball’s immediate future, as the baseball owners and the Players Union begin to negotiate once again.
