Game 2: 1994 Expos Honoured at Olympic Stadium

Montreal baseball fans packed Olympic Stadium for a second day in a row on March 29, 2014 when the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Mets played a second of two exhibition games. The first pitch was preceded by a stirring ceremony to honour the 1994 Montreal Expos. Twenty years after posting the best record in baseball, twenty members of the team were introduced on the field before 50,299 delirious fans. With a total attendance figure of over 96,000 for the two exhibition games, Montreal left no doubt in anybody’s mind that it wants Major League Baseball back.
