1994: The rest of the Major League Baseball season is canceled on the 34th day of a strike by players. The work stoppage wouldn't come to an end until April 2, 1995. The cancellation of the 1994 World Series was the first since 1904 and the MLB would became the first professional sport to lose its entire postseason due to a labor dispute.
