The New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays played an exhibition game at Olympic Stadium in Montreal last night, the first time the venue has hosted Major League Baseball since the Expos left for Washington, D.C. after the 2004 season.
I watched the Toronto broadcast that MLB Network picked up, and was amazed to see how many people came out to support baseball in Montreal. I never made the trip in person, but on television I mostly remember games where it looked like there were more empty seats than people.
As far as the game went… at least Jenrry Mejia‘s forearm injury isn’t serious. Hopefully the Mets’ bullpen is getting all of their games like this out of the way in spring training.
A few years ago, there was a fun blog that posted a scorecard during every day of the MLB season. Sadly, Squaretender no longer seems to be online. I’m not going to be up to replicating what they did, but will try to keep a scorecard for every game that I do watch and post them here.
