The Kokernot Ranch "06" brand was incorporated throughout the stadium, along with intricate ironwork of baseballs complete with painted threads. The field is home to the Sul Ross State University Lobos, the Alpine (High School) Bucks, and the Alpine Cowboys – a professional team and the 2012 Pecos League champions. The Cowboys season is from late May through early August; tickets are typically available on game day. Museum of the Big Bend: Since 1925, this museum on the Sul Ross University campus has told the story of the Big Bend and Davis Mountains. A children’s corner makes the museum a great place for the entire family. For exhibits and events, see pages 12-15. Paisano Pass Volcano: Visit the roadside marker five miles west of Alpine on Highway 90 to learn more about the volcano that helped to form this area millions of years ago. Performing Arts and Live Music: Alpine’s cool summer nights are the perfect setting for theatre-under-the- stars performances by Theatre of the Big Bend, Sul Ross State University’s summer theatre program. Since 1983, the Railroad Blues has been the place to go for live music in Alpine – from honky-tonk and Tejano to blues and rock. Live music can also be heard at Harry’s Tinaja, the Holland Hotel, Granada Theater and area restaurants on select nights. Sul Ross State University: Situated in the hills overlooking Alpine, the University is a great place to wander and enjoy great views and spectacular sunsets. There’s an impressive cactus garden in front of Lawrence Hall at Entrance 2 off Highway 90. Turner Range Animal Science Center: The Center hosts rodeos and horse shows throughout the year. On any given day, visitors might be lucky enough to watch university students and 4H club members practicing in the S.A.L.E. Arena, located behind the main building.
