Corpus Christi Hooks game photos and Dominican baseball players

The Dominican Baseball Guy got the fist chance of the year to catch his hometown Corpus Christi Hooks in action.  Whataburger field in Corpus Christi is one of the best settings in minor league baseball.  This year, the Hooks feature Jimmy Paredes, one of the top prospects in minor league baseball.  They got him in the trade for Berkman to the Yankees last season, and re-signed him this off-season.

Paredes was the only Dominican baseball player on the Hooks to see action in this game.  He went 1-4 and made a few good plays at second base.  The Dominican Baseball Guy got a few good pics of him in action (#24 below).  Paredes is from Haina, Republica Dominicana.

The Hooks took on the Tulsa Drillers.  The Drillers had two peloteros Dominicanos play in the game.  Hector Gomez (San Pedro de Macoris, Republica Dominicana) went 2-6 and scored 2 runs.  Wilin Rosario (Bonao, Republica Dominicana) was 2-5 while playing catcher.

The Drillers won the game 9-6, and there was some good action with the Drillers putting up five runs in the seventh inning.  Since it was Friday, the Hooks had post game fireworks, and a free concert on the outfield starring...wait for it...Neal McCoy.  Yea, he is a country singer whose last hit was in the 90's the Dominican Baseball Guy thinks.

Here are the photos of the Corpus Christi Hooks v. Tulsa Drillers:
