Here’s a riddle for you: what do New York City, Philadelphia, Toronto, St. Louis and Miami have in common? The answer: their baseball teams are all getting ready to head to their respective Florida spring training destinations. With the packages here, you can book your clients on the baseball-lovers trip of a lifetime—plus the chance to throw the first pitch!

Yankees, Phillies and Blue Jays InterContinental Tampa’s Spring Training package allows your clients to get in on the action while gearing up for a good season.

The package includes 20 percent off the best available rate for deluxe accommodations and a Fan Tool Kit, packaging all of the ballpark favorites like Cracker Jacks, peanuts, popcorn, bubble gum and soda, as well as the lyrics and history of the song, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and a baseball for signing.

In addition to the location—convenient to the spring training locations for the Yankees, Phillies and Blue Jays—the InterContinental Tampa also offers a rooftop pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and onsite dining at Shula’s Steak House.

The Spring Training package is available from Feb. 29-Apr. 4. Standard rates start at $151 per night. For more information, call (866) 402-0758 or visit intercontampa.com.

Guests at the Hyatt Clearwater, meanwhile, will appreciate its spacious rooms, ranging from 600 to 2,000 sq. ft., poolside cabanas, and beachside location, but they’ll be ready to sing when you save them 20 percent off all room rates. And sing they will, as the Jolley Trolley Service literally takes them out to the ball game. The Jolley Trolley Service, a transportation service provided within the city of Clearwater Beach, is one of the newest amenities available to guests at the Hyatt Clearwater, providing roundtrip service to all Philadelphia Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays games for $13 pp.

Standard rates start at $199 per night. To receive the 20 percent discount on room rates, reference special offer code LOEVR. For more information, call (800) 233-1234 or visit clearwaterbeach.hyatt.com.
