Welcome

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

Baseball season may be on hold but the Tampa Bay Rays are still anxious to get you reading. The Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education department has again partnered with the Tampa Bay Rays and Suncoast Credit Union for a fun and exciting summer of reading.

The Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education program also is proud to virtually partner with the school districts in Charlotte, Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota counties to promote the Reading with the Rays program and encourage students in grades Pre-K through 12 to read.

The Reading with the Rays program will encourage you to read more this summer before you return to school in August. By reading books this summer, Charlotte, Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota county students can circle the bases - first, second, third - by reading enough hours to reach home base. Once you reach home base, you will win two tickets to see the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field!

Be sure to read your copy of Reading with the Rays: Read your way to the ballpark, which will be accessible in the Tampa Bay Times electronic edition on Tuesday, May 12. You also can get a PDF of the publication on the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education website, by going to tampabay.com/nie/raysreading.
