What is Summer Slugger?

Summer Slugger is a fun, interactive, online course that uses the game of baseball to help kids ages 8 to 11 maintain their math and literacy skills during the summer months.

Major League Baseball and EVERFI have teamed up to create this platform that keeps kids learning while they are out of school, and avoid the “summer slide” that contributes to a long-term achievement gap.
