Historical use of the name[edit]

The original San Angelo Colts played in the Class D West Texas League in 1922. The team had started out as the San Angelo Bronchos the year before.

In 1948, another team using the Colts name began play in the Longhorn League. When the league changed names to the Southwestern League in 1956, the Colts stayed on board, but folded before the start of the 1957 season.

The Colts have been a part of independent baseball since 2000 with the Texas-Louisiana League (2000-2001), Central Baseball League (2002-2005), United League Baseball (2006-2010) and North American League (2011-2012).
