Blue Jays to play pair of pre-season games against Mets in Montreal next spring

MONTREAL - The Toronto Blue Jays will play a pair of pre-season games next spring at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.

The Jays will host the New York Mets on March 28-29 in the first Major League Baseball games to be played at the stadium in 10 years.

On Sept. 29, 2004, the Montreal Expos dropped a 9-1 decision to the Florida Marlins in the final home game of their 36-year history.

The Expos were owned and operated by MLB from 2002-2004 and the team was sold and relocated to Washington, D.C., for the 2005 season.

The Blue Jays will open their regular season at Tampa Bay on March 31.

Toronto's home opener is set for April 4 against the New York Yankees.
