Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in Wichita shows state at its best
July 5, 2007
Many people consider the arrival of summer a long-awaited and welcome occasion: a chance for rest, relaxation and sunny weather. But for sports fanatics, summer in Kansas is nothing to look forward to. June is devoid of Friday night football and the madness of the NCAA basketball tournament. July leaves fans of college football counting the weeks, days, hours and minutes until their favorite teams take the field. The August heat is sweltering enough to take a simple round of golf out of the question. Though summer is slow for sports fans, the downtime can provide an opportunity to brush up on history and relive some great moments. The Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, located two-and-a-half hours southwest of Eudora in Wichita, offers plenty of artifacts to quench enthusiasts’ thirst for sports.
