Looking for specific details about Whataburger Field? Check out our comprehensive information guide.
Corpus Christi's Whataburger Field, completed in 2005 at a cost of $25 million, is home to the Hooks, Double-A Texas League affiliate of the Houston Astros. Owned and operated by the Astros, the Hooks focus on exemplary customer service in a family-friendly environment.
The ballpark occupies land once dominated by cotton warehouses at the Port of Corpus Christi. Its architectural attributes, from mammoth wood beams to corrugated siding, pay tribute to the site's heritage. The videoboard in left-center field is framed by antique cotton presses, one which dates to the 1920s. During games, fans can watch large oceangoing vessels and their tugboat escorts navigate the port's ship channel. Ships clear the iconic Harbor Bridge (1959), a magnificent span for Highway 181, before churning out to the Gulf of Mexico through Corpus Christi Bay.
