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 Groupon: for $15, you get two reserved seats at a Corpus Christi Hooks Minor League Baseball game, a parking pass, and a fun package at Whataburger Field (up to a $38 value). Choose between the following games:
- Northwest Arkansas Naturals on Sunday, April 17 at 2:05 p.m.
- Frisco RoughRiders on Sunday, May 1 at 2:05 p.m.
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. Built to reflect the feel of a classic ballpark, Whataburger Field can hold approximately 7,000 Hooks fans and three times as many foam fingers. The two tickets (up to a $12 value each) and parking pass (a $4 value) gives nearby parking for one vehicle and two people. The fun package adorns arms with two wristbands (a combined value of $10) that grant access to family-friendly extracurricular excursions like the Driscoll Children's Hospital Kids Zone, a youth-scaled baseball field, a 27-foot-high rock-climbing wall, a 22-foot-wide video board, and a multifoot accessible trampoline. Along with being able to see the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium from inside the park, fans can enjoy breathtaking views of the Harbor Bridge and mascots removing their comically oversized hats to observe the national anthem. Call the box office ahead of time to reserve your ticket.
