CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Hooks Baseball is back at Whataburger Field!
The San Antonio Missions, Double-A club of the San Diego Padres, come to town Friday night for a three-game series.
Corpus Christi doesn't have any big names on the roster like ones in the past such as Altuve, Correa or Springer, but the Hooks will feature nine of the Astros' top 30 prospects on Opening Day.
Manager Gregorio Petit returns for his second season in the dugout.
Tonight is also Channel 3 night at Whataburger Field. Our own Leslie Adami will throw the ceremonial first pitch to start the game.
