t that someone had been hit by lightning. (19th Sep 16 at 6:08am UTC)
MINNEAPOLIS -- Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig can envision Montreal making a bid to return to the major leagues. DeAndre Levy Jersey . The Expos joined the National League for the 1969 season and remained in the big leagues through 2004 before moving to Washington and becoming the Nationals. While the Expos failed to draw one million spectators to Olympic Stadium in any of their final seven seasons, a total of 96,350 fans attended a pair of exhibition games there in March between the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays. "I think they would be an excellent candidate in the future. No question about it. That was very impressive," Selig said Tuesday during a question-and-answer session with the Baseball Writers Association of America. "They have much work to be done," he said. "Theres certainly in my case no hard or angry feeling toward Montreal. We tried to keep a team there. Its a long story now. But I thought that was marvelous." The Expos once fielded competitive teams and were able to draw over two million fans a season to Olympic Stadium in the late 1970s and early 80s. They reached their competitive peak in 1994, when a team featuring Larry Walker, Marquis Grissom, Pedro Martinez and John Wetteland had the Expos at 70-44, the best record in baseball, only to see the season and playoffs cancelled by a player strike. Then came the fire sale of top players and a series of disinterested owners, and the attendence steadily dwindled. The Expos averaged less than 10,000 fans in their last season in 2004, split between Montreal and Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Montreal once again being mentioned as the site of a major league team is a relatively recent development, but the successful pre-season series, which included a tribute to the 94 Expos, and the emergence of the Montreal Baseball Project led by former Expo Warren Cromartie appears to have put the city back on baseballs radar. Darius Slay Jersey . Lowry missed his third consecutive game with a bruised left kneecap suffered in a collision with Miamis LeBron James in Miami on Monday. Johnson left Wednesday nights game against Houston after only three minutes with an ankle injury. Jed Collins Jersey .Adrian Kempe had a pair of goals for Sweden with Jens Looke and Jacob de la Rose also finding the back of the net.Jakub Vrana replied with two goals for the Czech Republic in the second. http://www.thelionsshoponline.com/Youth-Laken-Tomlinson-Lions-Jersey/ . -- For a second consecutive game, the Portland Trail Blazers wiped out a poor first-half performance with a big rally after the break.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Lightning struck outside a soccer stadium before an MLS game, sending an off-duty firefighter who went into cardiac arrest to the hospital and forcing the postponement of the Columbus Crews game against FC Dallas. The lightning strike was in the parking lot of Crew Stadium on Saturday night, but its not known if the off-duty lieutenant was struck directly, Columbus Fire Department Battalion Chief Tracy Smith said. The firefighter, identified as Lt. Stu Tudor, had to be resuscitated, and was listed Sunday morning in critical condition in the intensive care unit at the Ohio State Medical Center, Smith said. She said it takes between two and three days to determine the total effects of a possible lightning strike. The storm with heavy rain and lightning bursts rolled through about 15 minutes before the scheduled 8 p.m. kickoff. Fans were told to evacuate the stands and head toward the concourses of the double-decked stadium. Emergency officials got calls reporting the lightnning strike at about 8 p.

Crew fan Don Lewis told The Columbus Dispatch that he was taking cover during heavy rain in a portable toilet when he said he felt electricity run through the air and then heard someone in the toilet next to him call 911 to report that someone had been hit by lightning. "All of a sudden it was just a bomb that went off," Lewis told the newspaper. "I knew it was close. The electricity ran through me." He said he saw a man lying on the ground when he got out of the toilet. "He was purple and had his shirt ripped off," Lewis said. Crew owner Anthony Precourt said on Twitter that team was sorry about the postponement, but that fans safety "is of the utmost importance." Precourt also said he was praying for the injured firefighter. The game was rescheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday. The National Weather Service forecast more showers and thunderstorms Sunday, but said they are likely to occur after 5 p.m. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
