2, Expos and that Independent league team (hey, it's technically not Minor Leagues....)

I was originally thinking it was the 1976 Olympics, but there was no baseball back then.

There was also another team in 2003,Canada created the Canadian baseball League and one of the teams was the Montreal Royales,the league was very unpopular and it only lasted 1 season.

No guesses on these. Okay, if anyone cares, Babe Ruth replaced George Halas, who went on to found the NFL and own the Bears, and the first corporate named stadium was Wrigley Field.
