Hooks host ‘First Responders Night’, ‘Dia de los Hooks’

The Corpus Christi Hooks are celebrating Memorial Day Weekend with their second annual Dia de los Hooks festival, and a special tribute to first responders.

Before the game, Coastal Bend first responders will park their vehicles in front of the stadium to say hello and talk to baseball fans.

There will even be a pregame parade, plus you can play catch on the field from 6:05 to 6:30 p.m.

Wednesday also marks Whataburger Family Day; buy an adult ticket at the box office & get your kids ticket free

Those first responders will also receive a special discount on tickets.

The game kicks off at 7:05 at Whataburger Field. It’s apart of a six-game homestand vs. Springfield (St. Louis Cardinals) and Tulsa (Los Angeles Dodgers).
