The hunt for a spot at the All-Star Game isn’t limited just to baseball players.

Starting Saturday, MLB, in partnership with the Mets, will be conducting a city-wide scavenger hunt – the ultimate prize being tickets to All-Star Week events. The All-Star Game is being held at Citi Field this season.

The clues will be announced, one-by-one, though the All-Star Game twitter account, @AllStarGame. The clues will lead seekers to five locations around Manhattan. The first fan to show up at a location and provide the correct password wins a package of four tickets to one day of the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest, four tickets to Taco Bell All-Star Sunday and a voucher to receive a David Wright autographed baseball.
