USPBL Reading Program


Jimmy Johns

Our class will be participating in the USPBL Reading Program, which is an incentive driven reading

program of the United Shore Professional Baseball League. The United Shore Professional Baseball

League is entering its eighth baseball season at Jimmy John’s Field in Downtown Utica this summer. The

USPBL features four teams – the Eastside Diamond Hoppers, the Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers, the

Westside Woolly Mammoths, and the Utica Unicorns. Help your child hit a homerun with reading this

March is Reading Month and earn a ticket to a Jimmy John’s Field game!


“Each class or grade has different goals for the reading program. Please check with your child’s teacher for their month long tasks to earn a free ticket to Jimmy Johns.”

As a parent, if you are looking for something different from the reading calendar, Jimmy John's created fun activity sheets that can help your child read and track goals through March. Please look through the options and find which ones that best fit your needs. You can contact Nicole Coffer at for more information.
