Surprising/Useless Baseball Trivia

Which team had the best record in the major leagues when the 1994 season was called in August due to the players' strike?

The answer is in the comments.

The now-defunct Montreal Expos (!) were the best team in baseball that year. Les Expos had a better record than the Yankees (who were tops in the AL) and were 6 games up on the Atlanta Braves in the NL East (who you might remember were a pretty dominating team back then. At least in the regular season.)

Also of interest: Tony Gwynn finished that shortened season with a .394 batting average, the highest since Ted Williams in 1941. Could he have achieved the elusive .400 if the season had continued?

I remember that!!! IT WAS THE EXPOS' FREAKIN YEAR IN THE SUN and then the league stopped. My brother and I in the height of our Canadian ball team patriotism, were crushed.
