Braves tickets available through ‘Home Run Readers’

ATLANTA — This summer, the Atlanta Braves are again partnering with Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) for the 2014 Atlanta Braves Summer Reading Program, "Home Run Readers," presented by Subway.

The popular 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 the state of Georgia with a free Braves ticket and a free Subway "Fresh Fit For Kids Meal" for reading books and completing an online activity. Discounted tickets for accompanying family members and friends will be available for each game for as low as $12 each.

All-Star first baseman Freddie Freeman is serving as the Braves’ ambassador for the program's second year. Program-related events are planned at libraries and at Turner Field throughout the summer.

Reward tickets can be redeemed up to one week in advance for any of the five following games:  June 3 vs. Seattle Mariners, July 22 vs. Miami Marlins, Aug. 17 vs. Oakland Athletics, Sept. 2 vs. Philadelphia Phillies and Sept. 23 vs. Pittsburgh Pirates.

Home Run Readers is open to all Georgia students in grades K-12. The sign-up period runs through Aug. 24.

Program rules, a list of suggested titles, registration information and redemption forms are available online at www.braves.com/reading.
