The frosts have melted, the birds have
returned, and those fields not maintained by the City of
Plattsburgh are pristine and prepped to play host to this
weekend's Champlain Valley Baseball League Opening Day!
Your Meron's Expos return a talented core of
crackerjack ballplayers hoping to improve on a 2018 campaign
that saw them post a .688 win percentage en route to the CVBL
On the mound, Billy Davis figures to dazzle
again coming off one of the greatest seasons in the history of
the CVBL. Billy went 8-0 in 2018 while cultivating a phenomenal
1.05 ERA, numbers that earned him his second league Most
Outstanding Pitcher award. Veteran righty Mike Bergman stands to
contribute to the team's success as well, having turned in yet
another sub-2.5 ERA last year.
The Expos' continued mastery of the mound looks
to work in concert with formidable presence at the plate. The
ageless Mike Bordeau returns on the heels of a team-leading .435
average in 2018, having clubbed no less than 7 doubles along the
way. Billy Davis once again played the role of Billy Davis on
both sides of the ball last year, and the Gautreau brothers hope
to follow up an excellent 2018 with continued brio from the
The games begin this coming Sunday, May 12th, as
the Expos travel to the Historic Big Ball Diamond in Lyon
Mountain looking to avenge a semifinal loss to the Storied

hope to see you there!
Expos' Over-30 Baseball: A Real "Home Run!"| Article Posted
August 20th, 2015
"Old Man Baseball" is back in a big way, and you can catch some of your favorite CVBL 'Spos representing Meron's this season! The games begin tonight at 7:05, under the lights at Historic Lefty Wilson Field in Plattsburgh.
Current Expos slated to play this season include Mike Bergman, Mike Bordeau, Cliff Conners, and latino heartthrob Edwin Rodriguez. A limited allowance for younger players will allow greenhorns like Wyatt Davis and Robbie Knowles to learn the ropes as well. Additionally, Expos standout Paul Bruno hopes to begin his undoubtedly inspirational rehab assignment with the Old Men before transitioning back into the CVBL next season.
The team also serves as a veritable Who's Who of Expos alumni. Former Expo Jeremy Bissonette will be in attendence to prove that the power is still there, while Todd Ford plans to flash both the leather in the outfield and his winning smile in the dugout.
Joining the CVBL players will be wily Over-30 Vets/Meron's Legends like Joe Provost, Todd Channell, and Richie Recor. These seasoned mavericks hope to impart all kinds of tips and tricks on the younger crowd, eg "Don't Blow Out Your Leg" and "Drinking Makes Your Back Hurt Less."
A copy of the Over-30 schedule will be posted here when it becomes available. We sincerely hope you come on out and support the team during the short time that they have left on this Earth.
2015 Season Draws to a Close | Article Posted
August 20th, 2015
A remarkable playoff run ended with a championship defeat for the Expos at the hands of the Fourth Ward Cardinals.
Pitcher Austin Medeiros was superb for the Expos in Game One, throwing 8+ innings of scoreless ball in support of the team. The Cards' pitchers were up to the challenge, however, and held the Expos scoreless until their batters finally pushed a run across in the bottom of the 9th.
Pitching continued to feature in Game 2, as Marc Plante allowed only two runs in a complete-game effort. Unfortunately, the Fourth Ward was up to the task again, shutting down the Expos' offense and securing their second straight championship.
Given the stop-and-start nature of the season, with huge swathes of the schedule eliminated by rain, the Expos performed admirably in 2015. The 'Spos' pitching staff was nothing short of outstanding, with Austin Medeiros, Marc Plante, Mike Bergman, and Billy Davis combining to post a franchise-record 2.13 ERA. The offensive side saw predictably solid work from veterans like Billy, Cliff Conners, Mark Golden, and Chris Roenbeck supported by invaluable efforts from newcomers Ian Brown, Wyatt Davis, Zach Lareau, and Edwin Rodriguez. The most rain-soaked regular season of any team in the CVBL gave way to excellent play on both sides of the ball in the playoffs, paving the way for yet another championship appearence.
The Meron's Expos would like to thank you, the fans, for supporting us in 2015 and throughout the years. Your enthusiasm provides a crucial boost in morale over the course of a long season, and particularly in one as chaotic as this year's. Thanks for coming out to the ballgames, and see you in 2016!
