The Corpus Christi Hooks are hoping their fans will honor the brave men and women of the U.S. military later this month on "Salute the Military" Appreciation Night, June 27.
The organization announced the event on Wednesday. Tickets to the game will be half price for military personnel and their immediate family. Pre-game ceremonies will start at 6 p.m.
Among the events planned for the night is a special ceremony honoring the work of the Peace Tree Project of South Texas. For nearly a decade, the Project has honored soldiers who have lost their lives in the line of duty with a tree planting ceremony.
For this special game, family members of military personnel are urged to wear the color yellow in honor of the brave work their military heroes do.
