MapQuest & MLB.com Debut Original Online Video Series

MapQuest and MLB.com today launched an original online video series, “Key to the City,” hosted by Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre comedian, Matt Fisher, that accompanies MapQuest’s completely customized ballpark content featuring “Gameday Guides” for all 30 MLB teams.

“MapQuest is perhaps best known for its maps and directions, but what we believe we do is deliver people to more meaningful experiences,” said Brian McMahon, general manager, MapQuest. “Sometimes our users know exactly where they’re headed, and other times, they need us to inform their decisions with the most relevant options. Our partnership with MLB.com addresses two of the top searches from our community – baseball and travel.”

The new “Key to the City” online video series complements MapQuest’s original Gameday Guides, featuring articles created by MapQuest’s editorial team with area travel experts who know MLB ballparks and cities inside-and-out. Each of the Gameday Guides features six chapters:

  • Welcome to the Stadium: History and key information
  • Before the Game: Get to know the best offerings near the stadiums
  • Inside the Stadium: From gluten-free fare to exclusive micro-brews
  • Game on a Budget: When to buy, where to sit and the deals inside

  • After the Game: From celebrating wins to drowning gameday sorrows, these places are worth the stop

“MLB ballparks and the surrounding areas have distinct personalities and they deserve to be explored,” said Michael Yessis, editor-in-chief, MapQuest. “Our gameday guides capture the flavor of these parks and passions of teams’ fans.”

This original content series is part of the MLB.com and MapQuest partnership to deliver MapQuest-powered mapping and directions through an exclusive app-to-app experience within the “MLB.com At the Ballpark” smartphone app, as well as integrated into MLB.com and all 30 MLB team websites. The MapQuest integration into the “MLB.com At the Ballpark” app and responsive, mobile-optimized sites make it easier for fans to plan travel around their ballpark visits throughout the 2014 season. As part of the official partnership, MapQuest also offers custom-branded MLB team experiences, available within its iOS and Android apps.
