Growing up in Eastern Canada, I was raised as a die-hard Montréal Expos fan. My favorite thing to do was to give Youpii (the Expos mascot) a hug and eat cotton candy at Olympic Stadium while I sat with my father watching the boys take the field.
In 2004, however, those memories ceased as the team moved to D.C and was renamed the Washington Nationals. While I presently have a soft spot for the US-based team I still call the Expos, I have made it a tradition to continue to root for all of the men who once donned an Expos jersey.
However, there are only 10 former Expos still playing in the Majors:
While these players will eventually retire, they have left an indelible mark on me. I wish them nothing but success in their future endeavors and hope their memories donning an Expos pinstriped jersey are as fond in their minds as it is in mine.
