Aimed at empowering educators and parents, the Detroit Tigers, in partnership with MLB and EverFi, are offering free remote access to an innovative and interactive online curriculum for students.
MLB’s Summer Slugger is a unique baseball-themed educational program geared toward fourth- and fifth-grade students with a focus on math and literacy skills. The program’s 36 lessons cover fundamental topics like vocabulary, arithmetic, geometry, spelling and more.
This is the first time in the program’s history that Summer Slugger, previously only available through educational institutions and educators during the summertime, has had widespread availability. With approximately 39-million students learning at home across the United States and Canada, Summer Slugger aids the parents and schoolteachers who are adapting to help kids continue to learn and advance in this challenging environment.
Parents can access the Detroit Tigers Summer Slugger program by visiting https://summerslugger.com/mlb_clubs/tigers/ and using the code “tigers.”
Summer Slugger is one of the many programs the Detroit Tigers Foundation supports for kids in the metro region. Recently, the foundation partnered with Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera and his wife, Rosangel, to donate $250,000 to assist with meals for children, technology for remote education, affordable childcare and protective face masks for families in the community.
