Major league Baseball to Montreal: “The condition number 1 is to have a stadium” – Felipe Alou

The investor group that hopes to bring major league baseball to Montreal, headed by Stephen Bronfman, would head the Peel basin, in the Pointe-Saint-Charles, as the site can accommodate a potential baseball stadium.

The group has recently entered in the Register of lobbyists in Quebec. However, even if the preference seems to go to the Peel basin, other sites can be studied. In addition to the name of Bronfman, Pierre Boivin, former president of the Canadian of Montreal, is also part of the Registry.

If there is someone who is well placed to understand the record of the potential return of major league baseball to Montreal, it is Felipe Alou, who managed the Expos from 1992 to 2001. And for him, there’s no doubt: everything must be thought in function of a stadium.

“The condition number 1 is to have a stage, pointed out Alou at the show The Starters, on Wednesday, on the waves of the channel, TVA Sports. And, even if you don’t have a team.

“If we built a stadium in Montreal or near Montreal, we will have a team. It will be very difficult to get in first and build the stadium then.”

Alou, who underwent a surgery to his knee last year, is a special advisor to the director-general of the San Francisco Giants. At the same time, his son, Moises, who has evolved to the Expos in the 1990s, assumes the same functions, but with the San Diego Padres.
