The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation has partnered with digital learning innovator EverFi to help prevent the “summer slide” in 4th-5th graders. All students are invited to participate in this online, baseball-themed learning course that helps reinforce critical math and literacy skills. Students earn points, unlock levels and receive progress-based rewards throughout the summer.
Every season the Texas Rangers honor more than 150 Teachers of the Year by welcoming them to a game with a special on-field presentation, where they are presented with a special gift from the Rangers. Each school year, teachers in various North Texas school districts are selected by their respective school as the most outstanding teachers. Each of these teachers has a hand in molding our future presidents, accountants, musicians, educators and engineers.
