CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Minor League Baseball will be returning this year to Whataburger Field.

The Corpus Christi Hooks will be back on the diamond for the first since September 2019.

They will play a 120-game schedule and will host San Antonio in their home opener May 4.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic expect noticeable changes this year.

"We ask for patience from our fans and partners beause things will be a little different this year, " said Hooks General Manger Brady Ballard. "Both the in-park experience, facial coverings along with social distancing measures"

Fans will be allowed inside Whataburger Field, but many questions remain in regards to security and safety protocols. Ballard says more information will come soon.

"We are waiting for an operations manual from Minor League Baseball and we obviously have to work things out with our local health authorities," Ballard said. "So we will be working through all that and communicating best we can to let our partners, season ticket holders and single-game buyers know when that information becomes available."
