Read Around the Bases

Presented by


The Wilmington Sharks are excited to provide second through fifth-grade school students the opportunity to become an All-Star reader with our reading program. “Read Around The Bases” encourages literacy and reading comprehension inside and outside the classroom for traditional and non-traditional schools.

Our reading program is FREE, turn-key, incentive-based and aims to help students discover the joy of reading. Students work towards reaching HOME by reading four books in order to receive FREE admission to one Sharks home games played on Sunday through Wednesday in the 2022 season.

In order to participate: Print the PDF HERE, cut out the bookmark and have your reader write the title and author of each book they read then bring the completed bookmark with an adult's signature to the box office at Buck Hardee Field for a complementary Youth General Admission Ticket to any 2020 regular-season home game.

For more information, contact Tom Lamont at [email protected] or call the Sharks front offices at 910-343-5621.

In 2019, this program reached approximately 6,000 kids in 40 schools in the Cape Fear Community!
