ExposNation, a Facebook fan page devoted to the Montreal Expos and the return of Major League Baseball to Montreal, announced Thursday the launch of ExposNation.com, as well as a second annual gathering at a game in Toronto.
“The goal of ExposNation is two-fold, to celebrate the history of the Montreal Expos franchise and to show the baseball world that the Montreal region can once again support a Major League Baseball franchise,” said Matthew Ross, founder of the site.
ExposNation members have also planned to attend a Toronto Blue Jays game on July 20 as a demonstration of support to Major League Baseball, the media, and prospective investors and owners that Montreal baseball fans want a team back in the region.
Expos fans can purchase tickets at www.bluejays.com/expos to participate. Former Expos manager and Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame inductee Jim Fanning is expected to once again join.
There are also plans in the works for a late summer event in Montreal.
