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.”

Upright Citizens Brigade comedian and MLB fan, Matt Fisher, hosts the new video series offering a unique, 5-minute episode on what to do on game days in select baseball towns. From iconic tourism attractions to local hangouts to hidden gems, the “Key to the City” series highlights the heart of each town with an itinerary best experienced with the industry-first, seamless MapQuest integration.

MLB Gameday Guides

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
  • Best Bets for Families: Make a child’s first visit memorable or get tips on the best experiences for families
  • 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.”
