An important part of our mission at the Pittsburgh Pirates and Pirates Charities, is to promote the importance of education. A critical and fundamental component of education is reading. It is the gateway to learning. Not only is reading important for your education, but it can also provide hours of enjoyment and fun!
In 2019, over 3000 readers participated and over 29,000 books were read. To congratulate all students that read 20 or more books over the summer, the Pirates hosted a special on-field salute - over 500 top readers.
