The Boise Hawks operated as an independent club in their first three seasons in the Northwest League, from 1987 to 1989, then became an affiliate of the California Angels in 1990. They remained an Angels farm club for more than a decade before becoming affiliated with the [[Chicago Cubs in 2001. They originally played in a high school field until Memorial Stadium opened in 1989.
As an independent team in 1989, the Boise Hawks exercised their right to draft players in the 1989 amateur draft, becoming the first minor league team to do so since 1971. Neither player drafted by Boise ( Paul Cluff and Darrell MacMillan) made the majors. MacMillan had played college ball for 1989 pitching coach Chip Reese. In 1990, the Erie Sailors (1 pick) and Miami Miracle (16 picks) followed suit, with several of the Miracle's picks eventually reaching the majors.
Boise was one of the cities to lose its affiliation in the Minor League Reorganization that followed the cancelled 2020 season. The poor condition of their home ballpark was the main reason for being dropped. Instead, they joined the Pioneer League, which had now become an independent league but was still part of the Professional Development League as a partner league.
