Yes. In 1990, a lockout by Major League Baseball canceled much of spring training and pushed back opening day. Because of the shortened spring training, teams were allowed to keep 28 players on their roster until May 1.

How do you determine what team an autographed ball is from?

Find a player on the baseball and Google the name to find out what team he played for do this with a couple of players until you see what team they all have in common. Once you find the team you need to figure out the year. Visit the Team Signed Baseball Price Guide link I left below. The price guide features links to full team rosters to help you figure out what year the baseball is from. Searching for the players that played the least amount of time for the team will help you figure it out quicker. Once you have narrowed it down to one year the price guide also provides a list of key signatures for that year. These signatures are the most important on getting top value. If the baseball is of various players from different teams you have a Multi signed baseball, and the baseball could have less value

Have an autographed baseball trying to find player?

The easiest thing to do would be to post a picture of the signed baseball on a baseball collectors forum and hope someone can help you identify the signature. You can also do some detective work, and narrow down the possibilities then research the baseball online looking for images of the same signature. The origin of the baseball might help figure out what team the player that signed the baseball was on. Trace the baseball as far back as possible to the city of it's origin, or to where you found the baseball. Once you have figured out what city the baseball originated from find the closest Major League team to that city. If the baseball was found in New York for example the possibilities could be both the Mets, and the Yankees but it could also be from the older teams that have left New York like the Dodgers, and the Giants so the age of the baseball might be important as well. If the baseball that the signature is on is an official Major League baseball check the name of the league president. This will help date the baseball, and might help determine what era the player signature is from. Now with this info try to figure out at least the initials of the player. Once you have an idea of the players initials take the information for example: initials "BR" Now start your research for a player with the first name starting with "B" the last name starting with "R" from a team playing in the city of New York, signed on a Joe Cronin American League baseball. Taking note that the length of the name is too long to be Babe Ruth, and the baseball was made after Babe Ruth passed away you can rule him out. Bobby Richardson could be a possibility. Do a search on line for players that played for New York teams, list them and start searching for single signed baseballs for each name until you find a matching image. If you have no luck then the player might be from another team. Baseball-almanac (Link below) has a complete all time list of Major League players from A-Z look for possibilities and start the search again using as many letters in the name as possible. Baseball-Almanac also has team rosters year by year.
