Montreal at Toronto Game



Baseball teams from Montreal and Toronto have a long rivalry, dating to 1928, when the Montreal Royals and Toronto Maple Leafs played each other in the International League. The Toronto Blue Jays and Montreal Expos revived this rivalry in 1978 with annual exhibition games until 1986. These games had no impact on Major League Baseball standings. In 1997, Major League Baseball introduced interleague play between the National and American leagues. This base is from the first meeting of the Toronto Blue Jays and Montreal Expos in regular season play. The game was played in Toronto – a three game series over Canada Day with the Expos winning the series 2-1. From 1997 until 2004, the Blue Jays and Expos faced each other 43 times, with the Blue Jays winning 24 games to the Expos’ 19.
