Corpus Christi Hooks fans still have a few hours to move to the front of the line if they want to buy tickets to the Big League Weekend scheduled for March 2013 in San Antonio. Tickets for the first baseball games ever to be played in the Alamodome, between the Texas Rangers and the San Diego Padres, go on sale Friday at noon. However, the Hooks organization has offered their fans an early chance to buy tickets for the event through their website.
Many of the players on the field for the Rangers and Padres will be familiar to regular patrons at Whataburger Field. The San Antonio Missions, the Padres' AA affiliate since 2007, have played several series a year in Corpus. Texas' AA affiliate Frisco has been a regular visitor at Whataburger Field since it opened in 2005.
The Rangers and Padres are scheduled to play exhibition games Friday, March 29 at 7:05 pm and Saturday, March 30 at 1:05 pm. Ticket prices for the games range from $10-$55.
