Warren Cromartie, an Expos player from 1974 to 1983, founded the Montreal Baseball Project in 2012. His goal is to help bring a Major League Baseball team back to Montréal.

To mobilize the business community, Mr. Cromartie approached the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal. As the Board of Trade plays a leading role in the city’s economic development, it agreed to mobilize a group of talented business people to study the conditions required to bring Major League Baseball back to the city. 

On March 20, 2013, working with Ernst & Young and BCF, the Board of Trade launched an initiative to thoroughly and objectively analyze the potential and viability of bringing baseball back to Montréal. This effort led to a market study among the public and the business community, a feasibility study and an analysis of the economic and financial spinoffs (in French only) of the project. These studies were financed in full by the private sector.

For details, please see the complete studies.
