The Batavia Muckdogs today announced a new reading program, designed to promote reading amongst the youth of the local communities. Along with the help of Smoke Free NOW, 2013 will mark the first year of the "HIT THE BOOKS with the Batavia Muckdogs" reading program.
As part of this program, the Muckdogs have provided various schools and libraries across local counties with customized bookmarks. On the back of these bookmarks, children can have a parent, guardian, teacher, or librarian initial each time they complete a book. When a child completes 10 books, they can redeem the bookmark at the Dwyer Stadium box office for a FREE TICKET to any Sunday-Thursday (excluding July 3rd) Batavia Muckdogs' game! If a child reads 20 books, they will be entered into a drawing to win autographed memorabilia, opportunities to throw out a first pitch at a Muckdogs game and other great prizes.
Bookmarks will be made available to children at the following local libraries:
- Richmond Library (Batavia)
- Lee-Whedon Memorial Library (Medina)
- Byron-Bergen Public Library
- Stevens Memorial Community Library (Attica)
- Haxton Memorial Library (Oakfield)
- Perry Public Library
- Holley Community Free Library
- Hoag Library (Albion)
- Pavilion Public Library
- Warsaw Public Library
- Woodward Memorial Library (LeRoy)
- Wyoming Free Library
Any questions about the reading program, bookmarks, or redeeming for tickets can be answered by Mike Ewing, at 585-343-5454 x 1005.
