There's no way to put that genie back in the bottle.
Of course it was actually the lock out of 1994. The players were going to strike, but the owners beat them to the punch and said "don't bother coming in". Unfortunately I think you are right. I still hear people talk about the "strike" for a reason why they won't go. My dad has been to 1 game since then, and he only went because it was Opening Day in $100 seats that he got for free. We used to go to 5-10 a year before then.
