Can Montreal support major league baseball again?
Do you miss the Expos?
A group calling itself the Montreal Baseball Project is teaming up with the Board of Trade to begin working on a study to find out if a return of Major League Baseball in Montreal is feasible.
Warren Cromartie, a former fan favorite during the Expos' glory years of the 1970s and 80s, heads up the Montreal Baseball Project.
"My whole agenda here in Montreal is to try to change the attitude," Cromartie says, "Because I know a lot of people who were angry eight years ago. You have to get past that because this is a new era. New times."
For now, the Montreal Board of Trade is putting $200,000 forward for Ernst and Young to carry out the study, which should be completed sometime next year.
