Gulf Coast League Expos

The Gulf Coast League Expos, often called the GCL Expos, was a minor league baseball team that played during various seasons between 1969 to 2004. The team played in the Gulf Coast League as a rookie-level affiliate of Major League Baseball's National League Montreal Expos, which also began play in 1969.

History

The Gulf Coast League Expos played in the Gulf Coast League from 1969 to 1970, in 1974, in 1977, and from 1986 to 2004. They were based in various Florida cities during these years: in Sarasota in 1969, in Bradenton in 1970, in Sarasota in 1974 and 1977, in Bradenton from 1986 to 1991, in West Palm Beach from 1992 to 1997, in Jupiter in 1998 and 1999, in Bradenton in 2000, in Jupiter in 2001, and in Melbourne from 2002 to 2004.

The team won two Gulf Coast League championships over the course of its history, the first in 1969 under manager J. W. Porter and the second in 1991 under manager Keith Snider.[1]
