The Expos have been gone for a good long while, but their spirit and memory are still very much a live in Montreal. While an Expos game isn't in the foreseeable future, Montrealers will still get a taste of Expos magic during the 2nd Annual Pitch and Catch Rally aka "Expos Day" in NDG.
Put on by ExposNation, a group devoted to keeping the MLB spirit of the Expos alive, Expos Day/Pitch and Catch Rally will bring together baseball fans young and old, all donned in Expos apparel, of course, to play some good ol' fashion baseball and meet an ex-Expo player.
To be held at Loyola Park on September 28th (almost exactly a decade since the last Expos home game), NDG's Expo Day will also give fans a chance to meet former Expos pitcher Derek Aucoin. The first 100 young fans who show up will have the chance to hit off of the one-time Expos pitcher.
Everyone is also welcome to practice their batting skills, with everything provided by Easton's 2015 new line of baseball equipment.
