It has been twenty years this week since baseball players, frustrated by what was perceived to be a lack of negotiation in good faith, went on strike to effectively end the 1994 season. A season which had the potential to see several long-standing single-season records be broken (Roger Maris 61 HR and Ted Williams .400 average among others). And everyone remembers how the Montreal Expos best team in franchise history was denied a chance to play in their first postseason in 13 years and may feel subsequently doomed the team in Quebec.  But here are nine facts that you may NOT remember about the summer of baseball that wasn’t.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
