So cool! Last game played in Montreal was in 2004. Major League Baseball is heading back to Olympic Stadium in Montreal. The Toronto Blue Jays will play their final two pre-season games next spring on March 28-29 at the former home of the Expos against the New York Mets. "We are excited to bring the Blue Jays to Montreal, play in Montreal and give the fans a taste of Major League Baseball again," Blue Jays president Paul Beeston said in a statement. "This will be a very meaningful experience knowing the strength and passion of baseball fans in Quebec." Montreal played to small crowds by the time the Expos were sold and moved to Washington to become the Nationals following the 2004 season. Olympic Stadium hasn’t hosted a baseball game of any kind since Sept. 29, 2004 when the Florida Marlins defeated the Expos 9-1.
