The Idaho Falls Chukars are a minor league baseball affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. They play in Idaho Falls, Idaho, at Melaleuca Field which holds 3,400 fans. The dimensions of the ballpark are 350' left, 400' center, 335' right. The playing surface is natural grass (Kentucky bluegrass). The team plays in the Pioneer League, a short-season league operating from June to early September, which is designated as Rookie Advanced League. They adopted the name the Chukars following a fan vote when the major league affiliation changed after the 2003 season. A Chukar is a game bird found in the region.

The ball club started in 1940 and were called the Russets. Some famous baseball players to come through the Idaho Falls ballclub are Billy Martin, Jose Canseco, Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler.
