One of the largest reading programs in professional sports, Wild About Reading utilizes baseball to promote reading in the classroom. Each student at participating schools that reads 10 books in five weeks earns two free tickets to a 2023 Grizzlies game at Chukchansi Park.
The program, now in its 20th year, reaches thousands of students in Fresno, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, and Merced counties every year and has served well over 1 million students since its inception. Designed to reinforce the importance and excitement of reading, Wild About Reading has become an activity the students look forward to year after year!
