Reading with the Rays

Reading with the Rays: Read your way to the ballpark
Welcome to the Reading with the Rays program!

With baseball season and summer in full swing, the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education department has partnered with the Tampa Bay Rays and the libraries in Charlotte, Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota counties for a fun and exciting summer.

Reading with the Rays will encourage you to read more this summer and to visit the library regularly before you return to school in August. By reading books this summer, Charlotte, Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota county elementary school students in grades three through five can circle the bases - first, second, third and home - and collect prizes as they go.

Make it all the way around to home and your ultimate reward is a ticket to see the Rays in action at Tropicana field!

The Rays are excited about this summer reading program. To see what Evan Longoria, Ben Zobrist, Chris Archer, David DeJesus, Matt Joyce, Ben Zobrist and, of course, Raymond and DJ Kitty have to say about reading, be sure to get your copy of Reading with the Rays: Read your way to the ballpark, which will be in your Tampa Bay Times newspaper on Sunday, June 8. If you miss that edition of the newspaper, you can pick up a copy of the publication at your local library.

Visit your library and read your way to the ballpark
After a hard day at the ballpark, Evan Longoria's favorite part of the day is relaxing and reading the newspaper. Reading can be relaxing as well as entertaining. You can enjoy the best of both worlds this summer by participating in the Rays Read your way to the ballpark program. Your local library can be a great place to have fun during the summer break.

By reading books and exploring the Internet, you can have a lot of adventures.

Books are your ticket to learning about the past and traveling around the world this summer. Be your own travel agent and choose your destinations that will lead you right back to the Tampa Bay area and Tropicana Field. The best place to find your favorite books is @ your library.

You can pick up your Reading with the Rays game card @ your library
