In the 2011 season, the Major League Baseball teams that sent players to the Scorpions were: the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Philadelphia Phillies, San Francisco Giants, and Washington Nationals.
For the 2012 season, the Major League Baseball teams that sent players to the Scorpions were: the Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, and San Francisco Giants.
In 1994, the team gained worldwide media attention, when Michael Jordan began his professional baseball career by joining the Scorpions. After one year, Jordan was sent to the Double-A Birmingham Barons in Birmingham, Alabama.
The Scorpions won their first championship in 1996 against the Mesa Saguaros.
The Scorpions would make the championship game in 2002, 2004, and 2005 but would fail to win it. For the 2005 season, the team played its games in Surprise, Arizona due to renovations of Scottsdale Stadium. The team returned to Scottsdale Stadium the following year only to be named the Grand Canyon Scorpions. The team would change their name back to the Scottsdale Scorpions in the 2007 season.
They would once again win the championship in 2010, the first time in fourteen years.
