PHOTOGRAPHY BY HANNAH FOSLIEN The Numbers There are 90 years and plenty of differences between those Fall Classic cancellations. In 1904, the New York Giants refused to play the championship because of a feud between their management and that of the upstart American League. (The Giants' owner saw the AL-25 years the National League's junior- as a "minor league.") They resolved their differences by the next year, and the tradition continued until 1994, when baseball commissioner Bud Selig called off the series on account of a player strike. Thankfully, cancellations are harder to come by today. "There's more of an alignment of interests between players and owners than ever before," says John Thorn, the official historian of the MLB. So, for now, play ball! The World Series has been canceled 2 times. OCTOBER 2014 SOUTHWEST 43
