The Ogden Raptors are a minor league baseball team in the Pioneer League based in Ogden, Utah, United States. The club plays at Lindquist Field.

The Raptors are one of six farm teams of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Pitcher Ben Sheets, first baseman Prince Fielder, shortstop J. J. Hardy and third baseman Bill Hall formerly played for the Raptors. Hall of Famer Frank Robinson played for the Ogden Reds, a previous Ogden franchise in the Pioneer League. Also, Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda managed the Ogden Dodgers to three consecutive Pioneer League titles from 1966–1968 and was present for the announcement that the Ogden franchise would again be an affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Raptors' inaugural 1994 season is chronicled in the book Minor Players, Major Dreams (1997, University of Nebraska Press) by author-in-uniform Brett Mandel.[citation needed]

During their second season of play, the Raptors set a league record for most runs scored in a single game, defeating the Helena Brewers 33–10 on August 27, 1995.[1]

The official mascot of the Ogden Raptors minor league baseball team is Oggie. Oggie is a cartoon green raptor who wears the white home uniform with a ? as the number. He is a regular part of Raptors home games and events.

Prior to Ogden, the Raptors' franchise played in Pocatello, Idaho; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Calgary, Alberta.

On September 17, 2017, the Raptors beat the Great Falls Voyagers 8-3 to win their first ever Pioneer League championship.[2]
