The Sherbrooke Expos unveiled a new look on Sunday and announced the Ligue de Baseball Majeur du Québec (LBMQ) will return on May 29.
According to a press release, every team in the LBMQ will play 28 games, running until August 15. However, it could be subject to change depending on the pandemic situation. Last season, league officials shortened the schedule to 15 games.
“Last year, there were no cases of COVID in the league, so from what I understand what we did as a league worked, so I don’t see how this will be different,” said Expos Manager Bruno Laurin. “The only thing that we’re hoping is to have more fans in the stands.”
Sherbrooke finished in fourth place in the 2020-2021 campaign with eight wins and seven losses. The season concluded with a four-game win streak late in the schedule and wins in five of their last seven games.
