Boise in The House of Daniel[]

In 1934, Boise had two or three semipro baseball teams. In July, the House of Daniel came to Boise to play the Broncos. Despite having a veteran pitcher, the Broncos made too many errors. The final score was 16-4, for the House. House manager Harv Watrous, always gracious in victory and defeat, assured the Broncos' manager that the House had been similarly clobbered in Twin Falls the day before.[1]

Another team of note was the Boise Senators, who had been part of the failed Utah-Idaho League before it went under.[2]
