For the past 150 years, college baseball players have been wowing fans with their athletic exploits. But not until 2009, when the nonprofit College Baseball Hall of Fame was founded, was there an entity to honor those achievements officially. Although its physical space hasn’t yet been built, the College Baseball Hall of Fame has already begun to celebrate the sport’s rich history. The institution expands awareness of college baseball through events such as a star-studded awards ceremony, in which they inaugurate the last season’s standouts into their elite ranks. As their fundraising goal nears completion, the Hall of Fame has planned its future museum, which will commemorate historical players and games and feature landmark memorabilia, such as the first baseball cap ever worn backwards.
The family-owned Jump N Jungle entertains kids at its 10,500-square-foot Jump N Jungle. Along with a selection of slides, the climate-controlled play area enthralls youngsters with climbing structures, an inflatable shaped like a playful tiger lying on its back, and a bounce castle where kids learn to leap and play the lute simultaneously. In the summer, Jump N Jungle also hosts Summer camps where attendees play games, enjoy bounce time, and work on crafts and coloring projects.
The crack of bats and the ping of golf balls fill the air at The Range's outdoor-fun facility, home to a 52-tee driving range and cages with eight batting bays. The Range offers practice facilities seven days a week along with cool beer to quench players’ thirst, provided they are of age. Guests can tee up as late as 10:30 p.m. Monday–Saturday thanks to a lighted driving range that allows for nighttime practice and keeps golf-ball-stealing zombie gophers at bay.

The 70th annual ABC Rodeo stampedes into Lubbock City Bank Coliseum prepared to kick up dirt and round up funds for local charities. Each spring, fans descend upon Lubbock for the multiday competition, which showcases some of the PRCA's most accomplished cowboys. As attendees saddle general-admission seats and rodeo clowns re-stuff their pockets with ham, competitors will battle spur-to-spur in a variety of events such as bull riding, bareback riding, steer wrestling, and team roping. The weekend's festivities uphold Lubbock's longstanding tradition of improving the community through sporting events, and for the 70th straight year, Beutler and Son Rodeo Company elevates the event's standards with quality livestock and broncos that are former Olympic champions in the high jump.
Pecos Flavors Winery opened fairly recently—in 2004, originally just as a Roswell-based tasting room—but it brims with New Mexico history. The facility's current tasting room, for instance, takes on the identity of a southern New Mexico ranch. Its bar is a century old, plucked from Hondo Valley. Nearby, a statue of Billy the Kid keeps watch, staring grudgingly at anyone who spills their glass.
Befitting its state pride, Pecos has an extensive selection of New Mexican wines. More than 80 different blends of regional wine populate the Pecos collection, including the winery's own varietals grown at a pair of Chaves County vineyards. Pecos offers a number of other New Mexico products, too, such as coffee, sauces, and chocolates, as well as beers gathered from in-state breweries.
