I was at this game in 1979

Doubleheader against the Pirates when they were neck and neck. The Expos were in first actually. Check out the attendance, 59,260. This was also the first game of the return of Le Grande Orange. The ovation when he came in to pinch hit in game one was DEAFENING.

60K people at an Expos game. Yep, boys and girls, it used to happen.

The Expos used to outdraw the Yankees in the 80's... But some people would have you believe that Montreal is not a baseball town.

God I miss them. What a mess.
