Rays 3B Longoria kicks off 'Reading with the Rays'

Rays third baseman Evan Longoria visited the St. Petersburg Main Library to kick off the 2014 “Reading with the Rays—Read Your Way to the Ballpark” program. Longoria read to a group of children, discussed the importance of reading and encouraged them to read over the summer. This is the second year that Longoria has been the spokesperson for Reading with the Rays. Participating libraries track kids’ progress and award prizes for reaching certain goals, including a free ticket to a Rays game. Reading with the Rays is made possible with the help of the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education and public library systems in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, Citrus, Polk, Pasco, Hernando, Sarasota and Charlotte counties.
