SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – In addition to the Salt Lake Bees, a number of additional Minor League Baseball clubs called Salt Lake City home from the early 1990s until the Buzz arrived in 1994.

In 2001, the Buzz were renamed the Stingers. The club’s nickname was refreshed once again in 2005 when the Stingers became the Bees.

However, the Buzz/Stingers/Bees weren’t the state’s first Minor League Baseball club. In fact, SLC hosted multiple baseball teams prior to the Salt Lake Bees.

Check out the threads from past Minor League teams in SLC.
