USPBL Reading Program Extended
February 15th, 2018
ROCHESTER, Mich. – The United Shore Professional Baseball League extended the deadline for sign-up to the Reading Program until Friday, Feb. 23, announced the league office on Thursday. The community program is surpassing record numbers, reaching over 40,000 students for the first time in league history.
The goal for each student is to hit a home run by meeting certain criteria and requirements during the month of March. Educators will work with students to set the requirements and goals according to their reading level.
The USPBL Reading Program is a fun way to encourage reading development in students. Every student that hits a home run will receive one free ticket to a baseball game this summer at Jimmy John’s Field (May 11-Sept. 9). The USPBL will also offer a free ticket to any teachers that assist with the program, and family members of each student that hits a home run are offered discounted ticket options.
The USPBL Reading Program will kick off on the first day of National Reading month, March 1, and conclude on March 31. The United Shore Professional Baseball League created an easy online site for educators to utilize to join the reading program. To sign-up today, please click here.
