Often times, businesses will arrange lavish travel accommodations for their executives who are required to go away for company matters. These frequent fliers are no strangers to a diverse number of cities all over the United States, but perhaps none are on the road as often as professional athletes, who play against teams in nearly every major city in America every year.
While luxury transportation and first-class airport service can certainly make any destination pleasurable for athletes who only visit cities for a day or two, Major League Baseball players are usually laid over in a metropolitan area for three or four days at a time. Because of this, one could deduct that they are the ultimate business travel authorities.
Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, winner of the 2011 American League Cy Young and Most Valuable Player awards, told USA Today Travel that he's particularly fond of visiting Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, "because [he gets] to see some family and friends that drive up from Virginia."
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino said that he also enjoys playing the national's capital, despite the fact that it means his team is facing division rival, the Washington Nationals.
Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Matt Kemp said that, similar to Verlander, he enjoys playing in St. Louis and Houston thanks to their close proximity to his family.
Aside from personal attachments to cities, New York Yankees ace pitcher CC Sabathia told the media outlet that he enjoys the restaurants in Chicago and going to wine tastings in California's Napa Valley.
Any parties who are visiting major cities such as New York City, Seattle and Atlanta can make sure that they are provided with the best chauffeured transportation and concierge services by making a reservation with Hermes Worldwide, a leader in executive transportation.
