The Reading with the Rays program encourages children to practice their reading skills during the summer. It rewards participants for completing 24 hours of reading with a grand prize of complimentary tickets to a Rays game.
Reading with the Rays presented by Suncoast Credit Union is supported by the Rays Baseball Foundation and the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education.
The rules of the game are simple. Choose your favorite books from your local library or your favorite section of the Tampa Bay Times to read over the summer. As you read, track your hours by rounding the bases and collect Rays prizes along the way.
When you read enough hours to get on first base, ask your parent or guardian to initial your card and bring it to your local library. The librarian will sign your card, put a sticker on the base, and give you a reading reward. Round the bases by reading a total of 24 hours this summer and receive two tickets to a Rays game!
