MONTREAL (AP) — A crew of Montreal Expos fans, willing to do just about anything to get their team back, drove to Toronto to watch the Blue Jays.

Organizers say about 1,000 Expos supporters, hoping to attract the attention of baseball’s movers and shakers, packed into the outfield bleachers at the Rogers Centre on Saturday for the Blue Jays’ game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The group wore the traditional red, white and baby blue of the former Expos, who relocated in 2004 and became the Washington Nationals.

Nearly a decade after the Expos left town, there is a small but growing movement to bring a team back to the city.
