Frisco Rough Riders vs. Corpus Christi Hooks - July 28, 2005

These pictures are from the Texas League game between the Frisco Rough Riders (AA Rangers) and the Corpus Christi Hooks (AA Astros) at the brand new Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi, Texas. Not a good night for the Hooks, as three Frisco pitchers combined for a perfect game, only the third perfect game in the 117-year history of the Texas League.
