Home Run Readers: The Atlanta Braves Summer Reading Program

Official poster for the Home Run Readers program.

This summer, the Atlanta Braves and the National Education Association's (NEA) "Read Across America" and the Georgia Association of Educators are partnering with Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) for the 2013 Atlanta Braves Summer Reading Program, "Home Run Readers."

This new educational outreach program encourages students to build a love for reading, as well as advance their reading skills during the summer months. Home Run Readers rewards students in grades K-12 throughout Georgia by providing one free Braves ticket for each participant who reads at least one book about sports or good sportsmanship. Discounted tickets for accompanying family members and friends will be available for $7 each.

All-Star pitcher Tim Hudson and All-Star second baseman Dan Uggla will serve as Atlanta Braves ambassadors for the Home Run Readers program.

"We know that reading and literacy will provide a platform for success and the keen knowledge to make wise decisions not only in school, but throughout their entire lives," said Executive Vice President of the Atlanta Braves, Derek Schiller. "The Atlanta Braves are proud to provide a reward for the hardworking kids in the state of Georgia."

Reward tickets can be redeemed for any of the five following games:

  • Sunday, June 30, vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
  • Tuesday, July 2, vs. Miami Marlins
  • Monday, July 29, vs. Colorado Rockies
  • Thursday, August 1, vs. Colorado Rockies
  • Sunday, August 11, vs. Miami Marlins

Home Run Readers is open to all Georgia students in grades K-12 and runs through August 11. Program rules, a list of suggested titles, registration information and redemption forms are available online at
