Rangers Hall of Fame broadcaster Eric Nadel is serving as the honorary chairman of the Summer Reading Club for the fourth consecutive year. He will be joined by Rangers pitcher Chris Martin and Fox Sports Southwest Rangers reporter Emily Jones in making reading appearances over the next several weeks.

Martin will read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle on Tuesday, June 26 at the new Downtown Arlington Library. 

Participants are asked to record the number of minutes they read from Monday through Friday over a four-week period on the reading log to become an official summer Reading Club All-Star. All students in grades K through 12 are eligible to participate in the program. 

All Reading Club participants and their families are eligible for discounted tickets for the Rangers home game with the Los Angeles Angels on Friday, August 17.
