Reading with the Rays: Read Your Way to the Ballpark

By reading books this summer, elementary school students in grades three through five in Charlotte, Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota counties can circle the bases – first, second, third and home – and collect prizes as they go. Make it all the way around to home and the ultimate reward is a ticket to a Rays game at Tropicana Field this season to see my teammates and me in action.

Go to your local library to get your game card. As you read, track your hours by rounding the bases on your game card and collect Rays rewards along the way. Round the bases by reading a total of 24 hours this summer and receive a ticket to a Rays game!
