Apple Vacations 2014 MLB Sponsors

As we say goodbye to baseball season, and the boys of summer – yes it is officially over! Apple Vacations looks back at our 2014 sports sponsorships.

We had a great time and want to thank our hotel partners and tourist boards for helping to promote Apple Vacations and their resorts and destinations while also treating our top accounts and staff.

You may have seen us in your local ballpark on the “Kiss Cam,” a sign in the stadium, caught us on TV, heard us on the radio or read a blog post on social media.

In 2014 we partnered with the St. Louis Cardinals,  Chicago White Sox, LA Angels and Philadelphia Phillies.

They are all important gateway markets for us.

Thanks to Palladium, Iberostar,  Dreams, the Dominican Republic, Palladium & Now for your support!
