Youth Education

Summer Slugger

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.

Leading Off presented by Globe Life

In partnership with Globe Life and the Arlington Independent School District, the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation implemented the Leading Off program with eighth grade students from three Arlington middle schools in underserved area. Leading Off focuses on giving participants the tools to succeed after graduation through various workshops and community service events focused on eight primary leadership qualities.

Teacher Appreciation

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, representing school districts across North Texas, these individuals are selected by their respective school districts as the most outstanding teachers. Each of these teachers has a hand in molding our future presidents, accountants, musicians, educators and engineers. A special recognition is presented to the four Regional Teachers of the Year, representing Region 10 and 11, who later go on to represent North Texas for the State Teacher of the Year award.

Texas Rangers Scholarships

The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation provides a number of promising young students in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with college scholarships.
