Under the new management of Tom Lawless, the 2011 Hooks—the Double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros—look to proclaim wood-stick dominance in the Texas League.

Two wristbands adorn arms and grant access to extracurricular excursions in the Driscoll Children's Hospital Kids Zone, featuring a 27-foot-high rock-climbing wall, a multifoot trampoline, and a chimp-free jungle gym ($5/each). Along with being able to see the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium from inside the park, fans can enjoy breath-robbing views of the Harbor Bridge and mascots removing their comically oversized hats to observe the national anthem.
