Baseball Season Cancel Sept 14 1994

  September 14, 1994 - The remainder of the baseball season is canceled by acting commissioner Bud Selig after 34 days of the players' strike. The last 50 games of the season and post season were cancelled due to the strike called by the Players Association and their leader Don Fehr. The World Series would not be played for the first time in 90 years. The strike was finally ended by a ruling from future Chief Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

September 14, 1923: Red Sox first baseman George Burns completes an unassisted triple play against the Indians as he gathers in a Frank Brower line drive, tags Rube Lutzke coming from first, and beats Riggs Stephenson back to second.

September 14, 1980, in a 10 - 7 win over the Cubs, Lee Mazzilli homers to break a drought for Mets. It is the team's first homer in 175 2/3 innings, going back to August 26 when Claudell Washington homered. This would be the longest drought for the rest of the century.

September 14, 1990: Mariner Ken Griffey, Sr. and his son, Ken Griffey, Jr., become the first father and son to hit homers in the same major league game. The back-to-back blasts are given up by Angel hurler Kirk McCaskill.

September 14, 2002, Derek Lowe wins his 20th game as the Red Sox beat the Orioles, 6 - 4. Lowe becomes the first pitcher in history to win 20 games the season after saving 20. He is also the first to record at least 40 saves and later win 20 games. Dennis Eckersley and John Smoltz did it the other way around.
