On April 14th, 1969 a major league baseball game was played in Montréal, Canada for the very first time. It was the Montréal Expos home opener against the St. Louis Cardinals in their inaugural year at Jarry Park.
The Expos were the first MLB franchise located outside the United States. They played in the National League (NL) East Division from 1969 until 2004. Following the 2004 season, the franchise relocated to Washington, D.C., and became the Washington Nationals.
