1. Arizona Wranglers/Outlaws (1982-85): The Cardinals were not the Valley's first pro football team. The Arizona Wranglers (later renamed the Outlaws) represented the Grand Canyon State during the short-lived United States Football League. They played their home games at Sun Devil Stadium and advanced all the way to the 1984 USFL championship game. (Photo via gamewornfootballjersey.com)
2. Phoenix Inferno/Pride (1980-84): The Inferno, renamed the Pride in their final season, were the Valley's first (but not last) indoor soccer team. They played in the Major Indoor Soccer League and shared Veterans Memorial Coliseum with the Suns. They advanced to the playoffs in their first season but failed to do so in each of their last three.

3. Arizona Sandsharks (1992-97): Founded by former Suns and Diamondbacks owner Jerry Colangelo, the Sandsharks were part of the Continental Indoor Soccer League and played their home games at America West Arena (now Talking Stick Resort Arena) in Phoenix.

5. Phoenix Smash (1992-94): The Smash was part of World TeamTennis, a mixed-gender pro tennis league that was founded in 1974 and is still operational. Former Suns and Diamondbacks owner Jerry Colangelo founded the team, which played at America West Arena (now Talking Stick Resort Arena). Two-time Wimbledon champ Jimmy Connors (pictured above) played for the Smash, and his showdown with Bjorn Borg in Phoenix drew nearly 8,000 fans, according to funwhileitlasted.net. The Smash folded after three seasons due to unsustainable operating costs. (Photo via Getty Images)
6. Phoenix Mustangs (1997-2001): The Mustangs competed in the West Coast Hockey League and played their home games at Veterans Memorial Coliseum, which served as the home of the Phoenix Suns until 1992.

7. Tucson Padres (2011-13): Tucson didn't have to go without pro baseball for long, as the San Diego Padres' Triple-A affiliate, the Portland Beavers, relocated to the Old Pueblo before the 2011 MLB season. The Padres played at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium (formerly Tucson Electric Park) before the team was relocated once again, this time to El Paso, and renamed the Chihuahuas.

8. Phoenix Giants/Firebirds (1958-97): The Phoenix Giants (renamed the Firebirds in 1986) were the longtime Triple-A affiliate of the MLB's San Francisco Giants, and they won two Pacific Coast League championships. They played their home games at Phoenix Municipal Stadium from 1966-91 before moving to Scottsdale Stadium, where they played until 1997. The Firebirds relocated to Tucson and were renamed the Sidewinders (see the next image) in a convoluted ownership swap months before the expansion Arizona Diamondbacks began play in Phoenix in 1998.
9. Tucson Toros/Sidewinders (1915-2010): The Toros were the minor-league affiliate of eight MLB teams during their lifespan. The franchise played its home games at four different parks during its existence and was also known as the Lizards, Missions, Cowboys, Waddies and Old Pueblos in the first half of the 20th century. The Toros were sold to the Phoenix Firebirds' owner and renamed the Sidewinders from 1998-2008, when they were Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate. The team was affiliated with the now-defunct independent Golden Baseball League in 2009-10, its final two years of existence.
10. Tucson Gila Monsters (1997-99): The Gila Monsters were a member of the West Coast Hockey League and played their home games at the Tucson Convention Center, where the Tucson Roadrunners (the Coyotes' minor-league affiliate) began play last season. They missed the playoffs in their one and only full season before folding midway through their 1998-99 campaign. (Photo via hockeydb.com)
11. Phoenix Roadrunners (1967-2009): There were six different versions of the Roadrunners over a span of four-plus decades. The most recent team with that name to play in Phoenix competed in the East Coast Hockey League from 2005-09 and held its home games at Talking Stick Resort Arena. The above picture was the jersey worn by the 1975-76 team that played in the World Hockey Association. (Photo via gamewornauctions.net)
12-17. Bisbee Bees, Miami Miners, Phoenix Senators/Stars, Globe-Miami Browns, Bisbee-Douglas Copper Kings, Yuma Panthers/Sun Sox: All of these teams operated primarly during the first half of the 20th century, and at one point or another, they all played in the Arizona State League, which later became the Arizona-Texas League and eventually the Arizona-Mexico League. The Bisbee Bees 1928 team is featured in the pic above. (Photo via theclio.com)
