Former Expos shortstop Orlando Cabrera is the latest former major leaguer to come out in support of the return of Major League Baseball to Montreal.

Following a pair of exhibition games which drew over 90,000 fans and featured a reunion of the Expos' '94 team, Cabrera told the website ExposNation.com that he would welcome the opportunity to become part of the city's push to bring baseball back.

“Thank you so much for all of the support you gave me over the years,” Cabreara said. “You and the city were great to me. Don't stop pushing for a return of Major League Baseball to Montreal. Keep it up. I would love to be a part of a franchise back in the city.”

Cabrera retired in 2012 following a 15 year career, eight of which were spent with the Expos before he was traded to the eventual World Series champion Boston Red Sox in 2004.

The Expos left Montreal prior to the 2005 season, but grassroot campaigns with the backing of the likes of former player Warren Cromartie have rekindled interest in the prospect of a return, although stadium and ownership issues continue to exist.
