Wasted Space in Montreal’s Stade Olympique, 1995 – Sully Baseball Daily Card at Noon for April 21, 2018

When my dad and I went to Stade Olympique in Montreal, we were struck by how BIG the place was and how few people were in it.

And the way that a gigantic chunk of the stadium was roped off, it would feel empty even if the place was sold out.

The blue tarp on the left covers the seats that fans USED to sit in. They moved the bleachers forward with the temporary seats on the right. The result is a concrete gap that stretches out towards the scoreboard.

Look, I loved the Expos and I want baseball to come back to Montreal. But MAN there is no denying what an unpleasant place this was to see a ballgame!

(It is still baseball and I still loved it… but still.)
