ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays Baseball Foundation announced Wednesday a partnership with the Helios Education Foundation in the creation of "Doubling up for Education." For each double Tampa Bay hits, each organization will donate $600 with an expected combined total of $200,000 per year, totaling $1 million over five.

"We are in a race against a clock in education today," said Helios Education Foundation chairman Vince Roig in a statement. "We are living in a knowledge-based economy, and it's going to take all of us -- parents, teachers, schools systems, political leaders, businesses -- everybody staying engaged and investing in education if we are to graduate our students college- and career-ready."
