1994’s Lasting Impact on Videogames

I thought this was a great article – kotaku talks about the impact of the 1994 MLB Player’s Strike on five replacement players that crossed picket lines and have been forever banished from the MLBPA.

Although these replacements later made full major league rosters, some of them contributing memorably, they are forever denied membership in the Major League Baseball Players Association, and thus their likenesses can never be used in any MLBPA licensed merchandise.

I never thought about this before; these players cannot show up in MLB licensed videogames. Baseball fans and videogame enthusiasts should give the article a read.
