A Gift For You

Scoring Points

When it comes to incentives, two things work especially well. One is travel; the other is sports. Now you can reward your sales team or top customers with a brilliant combination of both passions. How? Send them on a customized baseball road trip.

Guests attend baseball games and--if they so desire--tour the city on these three- to seven-day stints. Coordinated by Hatfield, Massachusetts-based Sports Travel Inc., which books flights, transportation and accommodations and secures game tickets, the getaways also offer guests a chance to chat with major-league umpires before the games. The umps spin yarns about heralded players and memorable highlights for curious fans.

Prices range from $275 to $395 per person (double occupancy) for a three-day trip to $550 to $895 per person for a seven-day trip. What makes Sports Travel's baseball road trips really exciting is participants have the option of staying at the same hotel as the team they're supporting, so they just may get to ride in the elevator with a favorite player.
