If new acquistion Kevin Chapman breaks camp with Corpus Christi next month, he won't need to be introduced to fans at Whataburger Field when the Hooks open the season against Northwest Arkansas on April 5. The left-handed reliever who the Astros received from Kansas City in Tuesday's trade was part of one of the most memorable Hooks' home games of the 2011 season.
On July 12, Chapman took the mound in the bottom of the 8th inning of a 3-3 ballgame. The Hooks loaded the bases against Chapman with two outs, setting the stage for Chris Wallace's pinch hit grand slam, which proved to be a game-winner in the contest. Wallace's blast drove home Brandon Wikoff, Jimmy Paredes, and J.D. Martinez.
Thanks to @HooksFanSarah who was at the game and told me about it on Twitter.
