National Car Rental has entered into sponsorship agreements with four Major League Baseball (MLB) teams, including the Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels, New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals. The multi-year agreements extend through the 2015-2019 seasons.

As car rental partner, National will have in-stadium signage during home games for all four teams. In addition, National will offer discounted rates to each team’s club, which includes players, staff and coaches, according to the company.

Club members will also be given access into National’s Emerald Club and the Emerald Aisle selection of rental cars with any mid-sized car reservation.

“We are huge baseball fans, and we are proud to support these four MLB teams as their car rental partner,” said Rob Connors, National’s vice president of brand marketing. “There is nothing quite like the experience of going to the ballpark, whether it’s with friends and family or a client entertainment event. We’re honored to be a part of this quintessential American sport.”
