Bill Young

Bill was born and raised in Quebec City, and from that moment in 1948 when his dad took him to his first Quebec Braves baseball game at the local Stade Municipal he was hooked. Over the years he followed the sport closely, collecting bubble gum cards and memorizing stats, always keeping an eye on the game. The appearance of the Expos in ’69 became his impossible (baseball) dream. Come true. Following retirement, he began researching and writing about the game, exploring its history, especially within Quebec. His articles can be found in a variety of publications, including SABR, Seamheads, and Quebec Heritage News. He also co-authored two books on the Montreal Expos with Danny Gallagher - Remembering the Montreal Expos (2005) and Ecstasy to Agony: The 1994 Montreal Expos – how the best team in baseball ended up in Washington ten years later(2014). A retired high school teacher and principal, and former academic administrator in Quebec’s Community College (CEGEP) system, today Bill and his wife Sandra live in Hudson Quebec.
