- Boston Red Sox
- Chicago Cubs
- Washington Nationals
- Los Angeles Dodgers
Wild Card Games

- San Francisco Giants vs New York Mets
Texas Rangers – Globe Life Park in Arlington
With seating for nearly 50,000 fans, Globe Life Park in Arlington is one of the larger stadiums in all of MLB. Many of our clients prefer the two rows of luxury suites that are available.
For people travelling on larger private jet charters, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airports (FAA ID: KDFW) is a suitable option. For smaller private aircraft, you have a choice of:
The latter option is just 12 minutes from Globe Life Park.
Cleveland Indians – Progressive Field
Voted the Best Ballpark in the MLB in 2008 by Sports Illustrated readers, Progressive Field is a great place to catch a ballgame. Affectionately known as “The Jake” by the Indians’ legions of diehard fans (based on the park’s former name, Jacobs Field), the stadium is located in downtown Cleveland.
- Capacity: 35,225
- Built: 1994
- Nearest airport: Burke Lakefront Airport (FAA ID: KBKL) (1.2 miles)
Boston Red Sox – Fenway Park
Arguably the most iconic ballpark in all of baseball, watching a game at Fenway Park is like taking a trip back in time. In addition to being the oldest park in the league, it is also one of the smallest.
- Capacity: 37,949
- Built: 1912
- Nearest airport: Boston Logan International (FAA ID: KBOS) (6.4 miles)
Due to its location in a high-density neighborhood, Fenway Park features some unique design characteristics, including:
- The Green Wall

Chicago Cubs – Wrigley Field
Next to the aforementioned Fenway Park, Wrigley Field is the second-oldest in Major League Baseball. It is named after William Wrigley Jr., owner of the famed chewing gum company. He bought the Cubs in the early 1920s.
With its unmistakable ivy-covered outfield wall and hand-turned scoreboard, Wrigley Field should definitely be on the bucket list for fans travelling on private jet charters.

- Nearest airport: Chicago O’Hare International (FAA ID: KORD) (12.6 miles)
Washington Nationals – Nationals Park

- Capacity: 41,313
- Built: 2008
- Nearest airport: Washington Dulles International (KIAD) (24.8 miles)
LA Dodgers – Dodger Stadium
If visiting historic ballparks is on your to-do list, you’re in luck. While it’s four decades ‘newer’ than either Wrigley or Fenway, Dodgers Stadium is the third-oldest ballpark in MLB. Additionally, it has the largest total seating capacity.
- Capacity: 56,000
- Built: 1962
- Nearest airport: Bob Hope Airport (KBUR) (11 miles)
