Patrick Mahomes was born in Tyler, Texas in 1995. But before he became a world-class athlete and a two-time Super Bowl winner Patrick Mahomes may have spent a little time in Sioux Falls.

I just found this out from a friend who is well-versed in Sioux Falls sports history. From 2007 to 2009 his dad Pat Mahomes Sr. was a member of the Sioux Falls Canaries as a pitcher.

Before his stint with the Canaries, Pat Mahomes Sr. was known for playing with the Minnesota Twins from 1992 to 1996.

During his major league baseball career, Mahomes Sr. also pitched with the Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, and Pittsburgh Pirates.

Mahomes Sr. was inducted into the Canaries Hall of Fame and had his jersey retired in June 2019.

35 Movies That Take Place in South Dakota

When it comes to South Dakota and Hollywood, we've seen our fair share of films that have used our state as the backdrop for a number of productions over the years. They may not have always filmed here, but movie folk love to set stories here.

We're all familiar with the blockbusters like 1990's Dances With Wolves, 1959's North By Northwest, and more recently, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets. But our state's life on the big screen goes back nearly 100 years.

According to IMDb, it all started with Courtin' Wildcats, a 1929 film which, like so many of the 29 films on this list, is a Western set in the time before South Dakota became a state in 1889.
