Authentic Texas Issue 27

The Sports Heritage of Texas

Texas is known for football and rodeo, but its history is littered with standouts across all sports. This issue’s cover features our Authentic Person, Texas legend Nolan Ryan’s baseball card for his “5th Team” — his role in retirement from baseball benefiting youth sports in Texas through the Nolan Ryan Foundation. Also featured is the Authentic Place, the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in Waco, and America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys.

We also dive into the legacy of “Bear Bryant” and the Junction Boys, Dublin’s Ben Hogan, the world’s oldest rodeo, the West of the Pecos Rodeo, All-American sports heroine, Babe Didrickson Zaharias, and so much more!
