Sluggo's Home Run Reading Challenge

The Eugene Emeralds are strongly committed to providing programs that support students in the Emerald Valley. Sluggo's Home Run Reading Challenge, presented by Oregon Medical Group and Wildish, is an incentive-based program that is completely FREE for local schools and can be adapted to any grade level.

The program runs from February through May, and gives students a chance to earn FREE tickets to an Emeralds game. Participation is easy!

    •   Schools sign up and provide the Emeralds office with student numbers so the staff can put together the teacher packets

    •   Sluggo and Emerald staff comes out to your school to put on an interactive assembly to build excitement for the program and reading *optional*

    •   Participating teachers decide on a goal reasonable for their student's reading level: whether that be reading 10 books, 10 chapters or having 10 books read to them for the younger students

    •   Students track their reading on the provided Home Run Reading Challenge bookmark

    •   At the end of the program, schools report back to the Emeralds how many students completed the program

    •   The Emeralds provide a voucher good for TWO FREE TICKETS to one of the Emeralds' pre-determined Reading Program Redemption games
