Successful sports teams in Dallas

If you are a sports enthusiast and are considering purchasing one of the homes for sale in Dallas, you're in luck. This metro area is one of the few in the United States that has a sports team in every major professional league. The following teams have experienced recent success, and there are plenty of other organizations to enjoy.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks are a basketball powerhouse in the Midwest, and in 2011 they went all the way and won the coveted NBA Championship. The towering Dirk Nowitzki anchors this team, and the other athletes always bring a high level of competition to the court. Head over to the American Airlines Center to see this team bring the heat.

Texas Rangers 2010 2011

The Rangers get their name from the famed protectors of the original Republic of Texas, but instead of rifles and horses, the team's weapons are baseball bats and gloves. This organization won the American League pennant in 2010 and 2011, but unfortunately lost the World Series both times. However, such recent success is encouraging, and another playoff run could be just around the corner.
