Major League Baseball announces that the Montreal Expos will move to Washington, D.C., in time for the 2005 season. The city, chosen over finalists including Las Vegas and Northern Virginia, has not had a baseball team since the Senators left in 1971. A publicly financed stadium is to be built along the Anacostia River south of the Capitol. NPR's Brian Naylor reports.
