Offseason[edit]

Spring training[edit]

In 1980, the Expos held spring training at City Island Ball Park in Daytona Beach, Florida, for the final time. It was their eighth season there. For spring training the following season, they would return to West Palm Beach Municipal Stadium in West Palm Beach, Florida, where they previously had trained from 1969 through 1972.

Regular season[edit]

On June 8, during a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Expos played against two different Cardinals managers: Ken Boyer, who was fired between games, and his replacement, Jack Krol.
