The Scouting Report
The Hooks are celebrating their 10th season in Corpus Christi, but that doesn’t mean their Texas League rivals will cut them any slack. The Hooks find themselves in a tight contest with every team in the South Division posting a record above .500 and within five games of one another. With that in mind, games against the division-rival Frisco RoughRiders and Midland RockHounds give the Hooks a shot at crucial wins that may prevent them from facing a tie-breaking hot-dog-eating contest at the end of the season. If any one player’s offensive effort accounts for the Hooks’ close contention, it’s outfielder Preston Tucker, who, through 56 games, leads the league in both home runs (13) and RBIs (36).
Corpus Christi Hooks
After joining the Texas League in 2005, the Corpus Christi Hooks wasted little time capturing a title, but they still had a little patience before reeling in their prize. On September 14, 2006, the team took 14 innings to defeat the Wichita Wranglers 8–7 in a five-hour barnburner and bring home the championship. But while it was only the Hooks’ first title as members of the Texas League, it was the 10th overall championship in franchise history—a legacy that stretches back to 1968, when the franchise began in Tennessee as the Memphis Blues.
Since moving to Corpus Christi, the Hooks have helped launch the careers of more than 40 big leaguers. Much of that success has unfolded before packed crowds at Whataburger Field, whose exterior of corrugated steel and bricks pays homage to the cotton warehouses that previously occupied the site. Inside, fans enjoy numerous amenities, including a rock wall, an interactive playground, and views of the USS Lexington, anchored out on the bay to defend Houston from any baseballs hit out of the park.
