The current name of Houston Astros was adopted three years later. The team has made multiple World Series appearances, including at the 2021 World Series against the Atlanta Braves.

4. Hockey: The Dallas Stars

Despite a shortened season last year, the NHL is back in full swing, with a season running from October to June. With a home base at American Airlines Center, the Dallas Stars relocated from Minnesota to Dallas in 1993. The team has an impressive record, with eight division titles, two Presidents’ Trophies, three western conference championship titles, and a Stanley Cup win in 1998.

5.Basketball: Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets

NBA’s season from mid-October to April offers plenty of opportunities to see Texas’s three teams in action. At the American Airlines Arena, the Dallas Mavericks are the most recently established franchise. Founded in 1980, their strong culture and diehard fanbase have made this team one to look out for with one championship, two conferences, and four division titles. Founded as a part of the 1967 NBA expansion, the Houston Rockets are the only team that started outside the state. After moving from San Diego to Houston in 1971, the team has won two NBA championships and four conference titles.
