The Boise Hawks are a minor league baseball team in the western United States, located in Boise, Idaho. The Hawks are members of the Class A-Short Season Northwest League is a farm team and are affiliated with the Colorado Rockies.
Prior to moving to Boise, the team was the Tri-Cities Triplets, who played in Richland, Washington, for four seasons after moving over from Walla Walla in 1983. An affiliate of the Texas Rangers for the first two seasons in Richland, they operated as an independent in 1985 and 1986. The Triplets were sold in the fall of 1986 to Diamond Sports and moved to Idaho for the 1987 season. Diamond Sports was headed by the Triplets' general manager Mal Fichman.
Their debut game was on the road and drew over 7,100 at Spokane, aided by the appearance of Hank Aaron. Continuing as an independent for their first three seasons in Boise, they joined the California Angels organization in 1990; the Angels were previously affiliated with the Bend Bucks for two seasons. The Hawks made the playoffs that first season under the Angels and then won the league title four times in the next five years.
After eleven seasons with the Angels, the Hawks moved their affiliation in 2001 to the Chicago Cubs, who were with the Eugene Emeralds for the two previous seasons. Under the Cubs, the Hawks won two league titles and were runners-up three times. After fourteen years with Chicago, the Hawks switched in 2015 to the Rockies, who were previously affiliated with the Tri-City Dust Devils in Pasco for fourteen seasons. The Boise Hawks had the "Dream Team" in 2012. This team had future big leaguers: Dan Vogelbach, Wilson Contreras, Albert Almora Jr., Feliz Pena, Stephen Bruno, Marco Hernández, Trey Martin, Yasiel Balencourt, and Pierce Johnson. They also had the MILB Nickname Champ: Rock Shoulders
The Hawks play their home games at Memorial Stadium in Garden City, Idaho north of the Western Idaho Fairgrounds. The facility on the banks of the Boise River has a seating capacity of 3,500; it opened in 1989 for the Hawks' third season, its last without an affiliation. The stadium was privately built by an investor group led by Bill Pereira and son Cord Pereira. For their first two seasons, the Hawks played their home games at Bill Wigle Field on the campus of Borah High School.
Prior to the Hawks, Boise hosted two Northwest League franchises in the 1970's. The Boise A's played two season from 1975-1976 before relocating to Medicine Hat A's. Not long after, the Boise Buckskins played one season before the team went bankrupt and ceased operations. Both clubs played at Bill Wigle Field.
Boise had been a longtime member of the Pioneer League, then in Class C. The teams were originally known as the Pilots, then as the Yankees from 1952-1953). The club reverted back to the Pilots moniker in 1954. Upon signing a played development contract with the Milwaukee Braves, Boise became the Braves and continued the relationship until 1963. Renowned broadcaster Bob Uecker played catcher for the league champion Boise Braves in 1956 and 1958.  The Pioneer League teams played at Airway Park, later known as Braves Field, about a half mile (0.8 km) east of Bronco Stadium, in Municipal Park in east Boise, now the site of the headquarters of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
The Boise Hawks are owned by Agon Sports & Entertainment LLC, and the company president is Jeff Eisemann.
