The Boise Hawks are a Short-Season A classification minor league baseball team, located in Boise, Idaho. The team is currently a farm team for the Chicago Cubs.

The team was founded in 1987 as an independent member of the Northwest League, and joined the California Angels organization in 1990. In 2001 the Hawks moved their affiliation to the Cubs.

The Hawks play their home games at Memorial Stadium in Garden City. The 3,500 seat facility, on the banks of the Boise River, opened in 1989 for the Hawks' third season. The stadium was privately built by an investor group led by Bill Pereira and son Cord Pereira. For their first two seasons (1987-88), the Hawks played their home games at Bill Wigle Field on the campus of Borah High School.

Boise's original team in the Northwest League was the Boise A's, who played in 1975 and 1976. The independent Boise Buckskins debuted in 1978, but after a 23-49 season, the team folded. Both teams played their home games at Bill Wigle Field (then known as "Borah Field").

The Boise Hawks are owned by Boise Baseball LLC, chairman/CEO is Neil Leibman, a businessman from Houston, TX. Radio broadcasts of Hawk games are carried on 1350 KTIK-AM.
