CORPUS CHRISTI - Hooks Rodeo Weekend joins a stacked lineup of theme nights, CITGO jersey series giveaways, 12 fireworks displays and more among this year's promotional schedule at Whataburger Field.
This season also marks the return of Blue Ghosts Weekend (May 28-30), Coastal Bend Weekend (June 25-27) and Dia de los Hooks (July 30-Aug. 1). The Corpus Christi Raspas are back for each Sunday home game, with a new look to be revealed in March.
The 16th season of Hooks baseball kicks off Thursday, April 9 at 6:35 p.m. against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals with a T-shirt giveaway for the first 1,500 fans, courtesy of Mike Shaw Automotive and postgame fireworks.
Starting off the promo calendar is a Hooks Fauxback Batting Practice Pullover giveaway, presented by Flint Hills Resources, on Saturday, April 11. On Sunday, April 12, all fans at the "Ballpark by the Bay" will receive a 2019 Astros AL Champions Ring.
