Our day started our fairly miserably by the beach on North Padre Island but it turned around once we left the place and headed down to the bay front of Corpus Christi with the eventual destination of Whataburger Field, the home of the AA Texas League Corpus Christi Hooks. The Hooks were hosting the Frisco Roughriders, and it was mini trashcan night.
The park is magnificent in its setting, attention to detail, atmosphere and fan fun/friendly atmosphere. The Hooks won 9-4 in an entertaining but somewhat raggedly played game (five errors). The key player for the Hooks was third baseman Chris Johnson, a former 4th Round pick out of Stetson. He hit a three-run homer which was the catalyst for turning things around.
After the game, there was a strange ball toss event as fans could buy a ball for $1 and the groundscrew put buckets on the field and fans had to land one in the bucket to win a cash prize. Sadly, my ball fell several feet short of the target.
