The Return of the Senators

Next year there will only be one Major League Baseball team outside of the continental United States — the Toronto Blue Jays

The Montreal Expos are moving to Washington. D.C.

� What’s left to do: The D.C. Council must approve the stadium funding package. A compensation deal with Baltimore Orioles owner Peter Angelos must be finalized and approved by Major League Baseball, which must also approve the move and sell the team.
� The name: The team will be called the Expos until a new owner is named.
� Opening Day: Likely April 4, although the schedule has not been released.
� Stadium: The team will play RFK Stadium for three seasons while the city builds a 41,000 seat ballpark at South Capital and M streets on the Anacostia waterfront.
