Prior to the start of the Bowie Baysox 1996 season, the team established the Read & Hit A Home Run Reading Program to help encourage literacy and an excitement for reading in local elementary and middle school students.  What started with an idea and twenty local Prince George's County schools in 1996, has branched out to include schools in 10 counties across the state of Maryland and Washington, DC. The Read & Hit A Home Run Reading Program now reaches over 250 schools and impacts over 70,000 students. The program also works closely with many Home Schools throughout the region.
