Reading Program

**To enter reading logs, scroll to the bottom of this page**

We're teaming up with the Worcester Railers HC so that students in grades K-6 can earn free Bravehearts & Railers tickets, hats, and even a field trip to the ballpark by taking part in Jake & Trax's Ticket to Read Program. Talk to your teacher about inviting the Bravehearts and Railers to your school to kick off the program with a special reading!

Here's How It Works:

  • The Bravehearts or Railers Staff visits your school to kick off the reading program (email Don Porcaro to schedule your visit)
  • You will have the oppurtunity to bring your school out for our "You-Choose-The-Rules" Field Trip Day Games in early June.
  • Students can earn up to one free ticket per season to the Railers, and one free ticket per month to the Bravehearts by reading ten books during the month
  • Students can also earn a free Little Moo Shake from MOOYAH in Northborough or Billerica while supplies last
  • Teachers (or parents) must approve the reading logs and submit them at www.tickettoread.net
  • The top five readers per grade (calculated June 1st) will each receive free Bravehearts hats
  • The class that cumulatively reads the most books receives a free outing at a Bravehearts game
  • The one student in all of Central Massachusetts who reads the most books receives a Bravehearts prize package including a meet & greet with the team, batboy/batgirl experience, first pitch opportunity, and pre-game ballpark buffet

Last year Jake & Trax's Ticket to Read Program reached over 6,000 elementary school children! The following schools were part of it and you can be too! The Bravehearts are ready to visit your school (either in-person or virtually) in 2024 to help you launch the program!
