Grab those ugly Christmas sweaters and sip on some eggnog. Whataburger Field is transforming into a winter wonderland as the Corpus Christi Hooks celebrate Christmas in July.

The Hooks are spreading Christmas cheer with specialty uniforms and giveaways.

The promotion gets underway tonight with a special ticket offer that includes a Houston Astros World Champions Christmas Ornament.

Friday night’s special includes a limited-edition Hooks winter scarf. That scarf will come in handy, as we hear there is a forecast for snow to fall in the area on Friday, complete with fa-la-la-la-la Friday Night Fireworks!

On Saturday, the first 2,000 fans will receive a Hooks Christmas Jersey, courtesy of CITGO. After the game, DJ Kane, Chris Perez, and Eric Sanchez from Massore perform a Cumbia Christmas-themed concert.

You can also visit the Hooks online auction where fans can bid on game-worn ugly-sweater themed jerseys.
