Despite baseball's unofficial theme song, peanuts and cracker jacks 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 $30, you get 12 general-admission tickets to Corpus Christi Hooks baseball games at Whataburger Field. Choose from any home game except Saturday, June 18, Saturday, July 9, or Saturday, August 27.
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. With 12 tickets (up to a $60 value), customers can bring all their friends from jury duty to a single game or spread out the tickets over several games. 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. Seats are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so call the box office ahead of time to reserve your tickets.
