FEHR TAKES THE PULSE OF THE UNION MEMBERSHIP
Published September 21, 1994
Four dozen players met with MLBPA Exec Dir Don Fehr yesterday in Atlanta, the first of seven stops over the next two weeks. Writes Mark Bradley, "The longer this lasts, the more strident the players sound. That's an indication that the struggle hasn't gone the way they figured it would" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/21). The meeting was "mostly informational. It was also medicinal." Fehr: "Nothing came up today we had not expected. ... We haven't heard of any players suffering greatly financially. That doesn't mean there aren't any, but we haven't heard it from them. Today, we had a lot of questions about what if this, what if that, which we answered as best we could" (Claire Smith, N.Y. TIMES, 9/21). Fehr is in Tampa today. Joe Henderson previews his arrival: "He has never caved in before. That's worth remembering as winter approaches and we start to wonder if spring will ever come" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 9/21).
