A brand new comprehensive baseball-based Curriculum Guide, developed by The University of Toledo, is available to all schools at absolutely no cost. It brings a fresh new perspective to basic subjects (like Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts) and helps showcase key principles as they relate to the baseball game experience.
Students are invited to participate in a 'Career Day' program before the School Education Day games. Professionals from the sports business industry will speak about how they achieved their current level of success and will participate in a Q & A with students. Career Day is $1 per person.
