The Boise Hawks are a minor league baseball team in the western United States, located in Boise, Idaho. The team is currently a farm team for the Colorado Rockies and play in the Class A-Short Season Northwest League.
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.
