Corpus Christi Hooks open 2019 season

Posted at 6:35 AM, Apr 04, 2019

One of the most exciting days on the baseball — or any — calendar comes today when 120 Minor League teams begin their 2019 seasons, all on the same day.

Tonight the Corpus Christi Hooks will open their season with a 4 game homestand with the Amarillo Sod Poodles. Reigning Texas League Manager of the Year Omar Lopez is back for his second season, and he is looking to improve from last year’s Double-A best 82-56 record as the club claimed both the first and second half titles in the Texas League South.

Opening Weekend at Whataburger Field boasts Opening Night color-changing t-shirts, two fireworks displays, The Big Bounce America, and an all-fan Whataburger 15th season jersey giveaway.

Single-game tickets are on sale now for the four-day homestand.

The World’s Largest Bounce House is at Whataburger FieldFriday, Saturday, and Sunday. Equipped with a live DJ, giant slides, ball pits, basketball hoops, massive inflatable animals and climbing frames, this candy-colored castle promises an experience that fans will never forget.

Participants can expect an exhilarating session of bouncing, big-air slam-dunks, inflatable obstacle races, confetti blasts, beach balls, and so much more with their ticket to experience this one-of-a-kind attraction.

The Big Bounce America pricing is $20 for a 45-minute session and includes a General Admission ticket to the Hooks game. Family (3+ tickets) and Hooks
