"We are looking forward to another successful visit to Montreal," Blue Jays president and CEO Mark Shapiro said in a statement. "The great enthusiasm and electric atmosphere at Olympic Stadium over the last three years has shown the true love and strong passion that the fans of Quebec have for Major League Baseball."
The two-game exhibition set has become an annual event in Montreal over the past three seasons. Toronto played two against the Mets in 2014 and the Reds in '15, then drew a record-breaking crowd of more than 106,000 fans at the "Big O" in April against the Red Sox.
"Today, baseball is enjoying a sense of renewal in Quebec," Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre said. "Aware of this popularity and eager to support it, the City of Montreal has committed itself to encourage and promote the sport of baseball all over its territory by adopting the Politique du baseball."
