Hitting a baseball is considered one of the most challenging tasks in all of sports, narrowly edging out carrying an egg on a spoon and winning a three-legged race with your grandmother. Observe the difficulties of the diamond with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two reserved seats at a Corpus Christi Hooks Minor League Baseball game (a $24 value), one parking pass (a $4 value), and a fun package (a $10 value) at Whataburger Field (a $38 total value). Choose between the following games:
- The Midland RockHounds at 6:05 p.m. on Sunday, August 7.
- The Springfield Cardinals at 6:05 p.m. on Sunday, August 21.
- The San Antonio Missions at 6:05 p.m. on Sunday, August 28.
Under the new management of Tom Lawless, the Hooks—the Double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros—look to close their 2011 campaign for the Texas League title with a run of bat-swinging dominance. Baseball supporters can claim seats at Whataburger Field, which is built to reflect the feel of a classic ballpark and the taste of a sizzling half-pound patty and can hold about 7,000 Hooks fans. With the fun package, two wristbands adorn arms and grant access to extracurricular excursions in the Driscoll Children's Hospital Kid Zone, featuring a rock-climbing wall and a 22-foot-wide video board. 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 oversize heads to observe the National Anthem.
