From April to September, the Corpus Christi Hooks take to Whataburger Field for America’s favorite pastime: baseball! The AA minor-league team, partly owned by pitching great Nolan Ryan, feeds into the Astros, a major-league team in Houston.

Located at 734 N. Port Ave. in downtown Corpus Christi, the stadium resembles an old-fashioned ballpark but includes all the comforts of a modern-day facility. The field sports a large interactive playground, a youth-sized baseball field, a basketball Sport Court and a 27-foot rock-climbing wall. The stadium also includes a pool and a spa.

While watching the game, you can take in the views of beautiful Harbor Bridge, Corpus Christi Bay’s ship channel, the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium. Scenic vistas can be seen from any spot in the stadium, except maybe the field where the players have to concentrate.

And don’t forget to stop by Hook, Line & Sinker while in the park to purchase all your favorite Hooks merchandise and baseball gear.

The best souvenirs come off the bats of players, however, whether as fouls or home runs. Every seat’s a good one in a small venue stadium like Whataburger Field.
