Despite baseball's unofficial theme song, peanuts and crackerjacks were replacements for the original, mid-1850s snacks of heavily salted licorice and wooden chewin' slabs. Keep your family traditions classic, but not too classic, with today's GrouponLive deal: for $54, you get four general-admission tickets to a Corpus Christi Hooks Minor League Baseball game at Whataburger Field and admission to a postgame concert (an $88 value), two parking passes (an $8 value), and two wristbands to the kids' play area (a $16 value) (a $112 total value). This Groupon is valid for either of the following game-and-concert combos:
- The game against the Tulsa Drillers on Saturday, July 9, at 6:05 p.m. and a postgame concert by the Texas Tornados.
- The game against the San Antonio Missions on Saturday, August 27, at 6:05 p.m. and a postgame concert by Green River Ordinance.
Under the new management of Tom Lawless, the 2011 Hooks—the Double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros—look to proclaim bat-swinging dominance in the Texas League. Baseball supporters can claim seats at Whataburger Field, which is built to reflect the feel of a classic ballpark and can hold about 7,000 Hooks fans and three times as many foam fingers. Two wristbands adorn arms and grant access to extracurricular excursions in the Driscoll Children's Hospital Kids Zone, featuring a rock-climbing wall and a chimp-free jungle gym. 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. After the game, fans can trade their baseball caps for 10-gallon hats as they take in a concert by Tejano rockers Texas Tornados or Green River Ordinance, a quintet of aspiring environmental attorneys moonlighting as talented musicians.
