First Mid-Season Major League Baseball Strike

1981 saw the first mid-season baseball strike in history. The last eight games of the exhibition season were off and the season was canceled until further notice. At issue was free-agent compensation. By the end of June, players were missing their first paycheck. It would be the end of July before a tentative agreement would be reached. The season resumed August 9, with the All-Star game in Cleveland, Ohio.
