Up, Up, and Away: The Kid, the Hawk, Rock, Vladi, Pedro, le Grand Orange, Youppi!, the Crazy Business of Baseball, and the Ill-fated but Unforgettable Montreal Expos
The definitive history of the Montreal Expos by the definitive Expos fan.
The team moved to Washington, DC in 2004, but the memories aren’t dead, not by a long shot. The Expos pinwheel cap is still sported by Montrealers, former fans, and by many more in the U.S. and Canada as a fashion statement. Every year there are rumors that Montreal — as North America’s largest market without a baseball team — could host Major League Baseball again.
Up, Up, and Away (New York Times Best Seller and #1 Bestselling Nonfiction Book in Canada) chronicles the entire history of the franchise from the perspectives of its players, front office, and fans.
