The history of baseball in Montreal is long and rich, dating back to the Montreal Royals’ first season in 1897.

In the 1940s and '50s, Delorimier Stadium was home to the likes of Don Drysdale, Roberto Clemente, Duke Snider, Roy Campanella, and the unforgettable Jackie Robinson while the Royals served as the Brooklyn Dodgers' farm club. In 1969, the Montreal Expos became Major League Baseball’s first non-U.S. franchise and went on to thrill the city for 36 seasons. A passionate fanbase fondly recalls the exploits of Hall of Famers Gary Carter and Andre Dawson, as well as Cooperstown-bound stars like Tim Raines, Pedro Martinez, and Vladimir Guerrero.
