About 1,500 meatpackers struck Geo. A. Hormel & Co. on Saturday, refusing to accept the same wages paid at other Hormel plants in spite of a company threat to move its headquarters out of town. The strike follows months of feuding between the union and Hormel, which last October cut workers' base wages 23%, from $10.69 to $8.25 an hour, in what it said was an effort to remain competitive. Before the strike, Austin wages had risen to $9.25.

There was a nice moment at home plate just before Saturday's game between the Tigers and the Twins. Very touching. As the teams trotted back to their dugouts after introductions, Tiger Manager Sparky Anderson huddled with Twin reliever Juan Berenguer. Standing at the plate, nose to nose, they talked briefly, and Sparky grabbed Juan's head in a fatherly gesture of affection. There was another moment at home plate in the seventh inning.
