CORPUS CHRISTI - The Hooks' 2017 promotional calendar features 21 giveaway items, including six must-have offerings in the CITGO jersey series, Whataburger umbrellas on the first Saturday, and Alex Bregman bobbleheads from Wigington Rumley Dunn & Blair.
"Our sponsors have come through again to provide a great deal of additional value for fans who enjoy exciting Texas League Baseball at Whataburger Field," team president Ken Schrom said. "We are blessed with partners who love and support our community and believe in what we're doing; that is both appreciated and gratifying."
Hooks magnetic schedules from the Caller-Times and Mike Shaw Automotive's Opening Day t-shirts top the lineup on Thursday, April 13, before the first of five "decades" nights from Radiology Associates. '80s Night, complete with the Spazmatics in concert postgame, kicks them off.
The last Saturday of April ushers in the next series of CITGO Hooks tops, and this year's theme is CCISD high schools. The purple and gold of Miller, Corpus Christi's oldest high school campus, rules on April 29, followed by Moody (blue & gold/May 13), King (green & white/June 24), Ray (red & gray/July 29), Carroll (Columbia blue, Navy & white/August 12), and Veterans Memorial (red, white & Navy /Sept. 2).
"If you're affiliated with one of those schools, or just like Hooks gear in every conceivable color, be sure to get here early," Schrom said of the 1,750-jersey giveaways. "They will go quickly."
Dia de los Hooks, an acknowledgement of Dia de los Muertos, takes over the ballpark during May's final weekend. Tumblers from Ashley HomeStore and DRI-FIT t-shirts from Hilliard Munoz Gonzales punctuate the celebration.
The ball club completes a six-game road trip at Arkansas on Independence Day, but the next night fireworks presented by Mike Shaw Automotive light the sky at the Port of Corpus Christi.
Single-game tickets for all 2017 home games go on sale at 10 a.m. next Friday, February 24. Go to cchooks.com, visit the Whataburger Field box office, or call 361-561-HOOK.
