MLBPA did not get their way in court over the anti trust lawsuit that got rejected.

Fehr said they would play the full season and they didn't and most fans turned against bim.

Up to this point the owners were viewed as the evil ones--this moved changed it

I thought the strike was stopped after the court ruled that the MLB's unilaterally changed and imposed CBA was illegal?
