Join the Hooks as they ride into Rodeo Weekend wearing special-edition uniforms. The Budweiser Clydesdales will take a pregame tour around the ballpark on Friday, May 6, with mutton busting setting the stage for postgame fireworks. Please note the special 3:05 start time Saturday, allowing fans to enjoy the Buc Day’s Illuminated Night Parade.
