With a new administration, a distinguished honorary president, a 16-game home schedule, a tailgate event and a competitive line-up, the Sherbrooke Expos’ season promises to be very interesting.
Since he acquired the team last fall, Denis Pelletier and his team have worked tirelessly to provide high quality entertainment to the Sherbrooke population. It is his passion for baseball and his love for his city that pushed him to embark on this adventure.
“My mission in buying the team was to keep it in Sherbrooke. Now that the future of the club is assured here, I want fans to find a place of choice to see quality baseball, to break the isolation and to socialize in a unique atmosphere,” says Mr. Pelletier, owner and president of the team.
The City of Sherbrooke is an essential partner in the success of the organization and, like the team, it has also adopted a new administration. With this in mind, Sherbrooke’s new mayor, Ms. Évelyne Beaudin, has been offered the honorary presidency for the 2022 season, a role she has agreed to add to her busy schedule.
“Beyond the team’s rich history, there is also the impact on our youth. It encourages them to get moving, to get involved in a team sport. Baseball creates great moments with family and friends, and let’s face it, what could be better than a good hot dog on a Sunday afternoon at Amédée-Roy stadium!”, commented Beaudin in a recent statement.
