  • Boston Braves home games in ... Montreal?

    In this article... http://sivertimes.com/the-return-of-...s-in-half/8864 ... I read an intriguing paragraph:

    The Boston Braves have played a few games “home” … in Montreal. In 1918, the war undermined the audience MLB. The Braves had then tried an unusual experience: play their parts Sunday here in the metropolis. An experience that has not had the expected success and that ended abruptly after two games.

    Anyone knows anything about these two games in Montréal?

    Though promoted as actual major league games, research by Walter LeConte indicates they were in-season exhibition games.

      Wow! Thank you Macker!!

      1918-07-28: Boston Braves 3 ... Chicago Cubs 2
      1918-08-04: Boston Braves 6 ... Cincinnati Reds 11

      I'll try to find out details (boxscores, coverage, ...) about these games in newspaper archives of that time.
