Minor League baseball began in Logan in 1902, when the Logan team played as members of the four–team Independent level Utah State League. Logan played the season under manager Harry Stovey. The 1902 Utah State League final standings are unknown. The Utah State League disbanded following the 1902 season.[1][2]

In 1921, the Logan "Collegians" became charter members of the Class D level Northern Utah League.

The Logan Collegians finished the 1921 season with a record of 8–9, placing 4th in the six–team Northern Utah League. Playing under manager Lewis Edwards,[10] The Collegians Logan finished 5.5 games behind the 1st place Tremonton team. The Northern Utah League folded as a minor league after the 1921 season.[11][12]

In their final season of minor league play, the Logan Collegians ended the 1927 Utah–Idaho League season in 4th place.[22] With a 49–51 record, the Collegians finished 7.5 games behind the champion Ogden Gunners. Harry Wolter served as player/manager in 1927. The Logan franchise folded after the 1927 season and was replaced in the 1928 Utah–Idaho League season by the Boise Senators.[23][12]
