CORPUS CHRISTI - Your Corpus Christi Hooks return to Whataburger Field this Labor Day weekend for a four-game series with the San Antonio Missions.
With a major emphasis on Hurricane Harvey relief, here's a summary of opportunities for our Coastal Bend family over the course of all three days:
‣A portion of the weekend's proceeds from all ballpark points-of-sale, including retail, concessions, the Whataburger store, Rudy's Prize Wheel, and the Driscoll Health Plan Kids Zone will go for storm relief.
‣$5 from the sale of every ticket $6 or more goes to the relief effort.
‣To promote affordability for citizens of affected areas, the Hooks are offering FREE PARKING and "Pay What You Can" seating in Corner Box Reserved sections of the ballpark, based on availability. There is also a grass Berm accommodation when Corner Box seat inventory is exhausted.
Autographed Corpus Christi Game-Worn Jersey Auction - The Hooks will wear their road gray "Corpus Christi" jersey set during the San Antonio series. Submit your bids online Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Go to cchooks.com beginning Saturday.
Cash Donations - You can provide cash donations to the effort all homestand long by simply contributing at the 5-gallon water bottle at Section 119.
Home Run Dollars - Hooks players have agreed to dedicate their season-long home run dollar take to the effort, so be sure to stuff your dollars into the bait bucket when it's passed your way after a Corpus Christi home run.
Storm Relief Supplies - The Hooks and Ainsworth Trucking will collect these critical supplies at the trailer on Whataburger Field's west-side service drive:
bottled water; non-perishable food items; baby food & formula; diapers; toiletries; toilet paper; blankets; dried pet food; animal crates.
