Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre says he’s looking forward to meeting with the commissioner of Major League Baseball at the end of the month in his ongoing quest to see the sport return to the city.

Coderre says his meeting with Rob Manfred on May 28 in New York City will be a first opportunity for the two to chat face-to-face.

“We will show Mr. Manfred our love for the sport,” Coderre said in an interview. “I don’t want to negotiate openly, but we’ll clearly talk about Montreal.”
