From the Expos Historical Society's web site :
«For the first time in its history, Major League Baseball will own a team after acquiring the Montreal Expos from Jeffrey Loria. Loria sells the Expos for $120 million then buys the Florida Marlins of John Henry for $158.5 million with the difference being made up with a loan from MLB.» And, of course, let's not forget that the Expos will also name Frank Robinson as manager, Tony Tavares as president of the club with Omar Minaya becoming the major leagues' first Hispanic general manager.
What a sad day it was
