WASHINGTON (AP) – Baseball is returning to the nation’s capital for the first time in 33 years, in the form of the Montreal Expos.
Expos president Tony Tavares said Major League Baseball told him Wednesday his team was moving, shortly before Washington officials planned their own announcement to celebrate the news.
“It’s a day when the sun is setting in Montreal, but it’s rising in Washington,” Tavares told a news conference at Olympic Stadium in Montreal.
