The population was 129,480 at the 2010 census; the city incorporated in 1980 from a large growing unincorporated area, variously known as Granger, Hunter and Redwood. It is home to the Maverik USANA Amphitheatre; the earliest known residents of the western Salt Lake Valley were Native American bands of the Ute and Shoshoni tribes. The first European people to live in the area were the Latter-day Saints; the Euro-Americans arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. The area was first staked out by settler Joseph Harker and his family in the area they named as "over Jordan"; the Granger area was settled by Welsh Latter-day Saints who had come to Utah with Dan Jones in 1849. Irrigation systems and agriculture were developed in the area, it was Elias Smith who proposed the area's name on account of its successful farming. At other times high alkali content made farming difficult, but there were enough Latter-day Saints to form a separate Granger Ward in 1884.
Granger and vicinity had about 1,000 people in 1930. Hunter was not settled until 1876; this settlement was started by Rasmus Nielsen, Edward Rushton, August Larsen and about seven others along with their families. Irrigation began in 1881 and the main crop was fruit trees; the city began to experience rapid growth in the 1970s, when the area, now West Valley City consisted of the four separate communities of Hunter, Granger and Redwood. These four unincorporated areas merged in 1980 to form the present-day city. During the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, West Valley City was the official venue for men's and women's ice hockey.

Logan City referred to Logan, is a city in Cache County, United States. The 2010 census recorded the population was 48,174, with an estimated population of 48,997 in 2014. By 2050 the population of Logan is expected to double. Logan is the county seat of Cache County and the principal city of the Logan metropolitan area, which includes Cache County and Franklin County, Idaho; the Logan metropolitan area contained 125,442 people as of the 2010 census. And was declared by Morgan Quitno in 2005 and 2007 to be the safest in the United States in those years. Logan is the location of the main campus of Utah State University; the town of Logan was founded in 1859 by settlers sent by Brigham Young to survey for the site of a fort near the banks of the Logan River. They named their new community an early fur trapper in the area. Logan was incorporated on January 17, 1866. Brigham Young College was founded here on August 6, 1877, Utah State University – called the Agricultural College of Utah – was founded in 1888.
Logan's growth reflects settlement and post-war booms along with other changes incidental to conditions in the West. Logan grew to about 20,000 in the mid-1960s, according to Census estimates, exceeded 50,000 in 2015. Logan is in northern Utah, 47 miles north of Ogden, on the Logan River, it is about 82 miles north of Salt Lake City. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 18.5 square miles, of which 18.0 square miles is land and 0.58 square miles, or 3.16%, is water. The city lies near the eastern edge of Cache Valley on the western slopes of the Bear River Mountains. Mount Logan rises to an elevation of 9,710 feet to the east, south of Logan Canyon; the eastern portions of the city are constructed on top of shelf-like "benches", late Pleistocene sedimentary deposits created by the glacially fed Logan River feeding into the northern stretches of Lake Bonneville, building a "Gilbert-type" river delta over several thousand years. The Logan River cut down through these sedimentary deposits following the draining of Lake Bonneville 14,500 years ago.
This created a low-lying area with steep slopes that reach into the rest of town and to the Logan River bottomlands. To the west of Logan lie flatlands that contain both farmland and marshes. To the north and south of Logan are growing residential suburbs. Logan has a humid continental climate with warm though dry summers and cold winters with moderate snowfall. Precipitation tends to be heaviest in the spring months. Similar to other areas in northern Utah, during mid-winter high pressure systems situate themselves over Cache Valley, leading to strong temperature inversions; these temperature inversions trap cold air and pollutants and allow thick smog to accumulate in the valley about three percent of the time. This can result in the worst air pollution levels in the U. S. reducing air quality to unhealthy level. Logan's city grid originates from its Main and Center Street block, with Main Street running north and south, Center east and west; each block north, south, or west of the origin accumulates in increments of 100, though some streets have non-numeric names.
This street grid is typical of many towns and cities founded by Latter-day Saints in the Mormon Corridor. Most of Logan's commercial businesses are along Main Street. Logan's downtown area is in the center of the city and is noted for its many historic buildings and landmarks. Among them are the Logan Tabernacle and Logan Utah Temple, constructed on the highest hill in the valley so as to be seen for miles in all directions. Both buildings are operated by the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Along Center Street, which intersects Logan's Historic District, are a number of stately houses on the National Register of Historic Places; the downtown area houses retail and cultural outlets, as well as the municipal and county buildings and courthouses. The eastern portion of Logan includes the Cliffside and Island neighborhoods, as well as the University district. Utah State University, with its many educational, cultural and athletic programs, was established in 1888; the campus stands on the eastern side of the city, near to the mountains.
USU is the city's largest employer, has an enrollment of about 24,000 students in Logan. Logan Canyon begins in the foothills close to campus. Logan's southern portion is a mixture of commercial and residential, contains portions of the Logan River as well as the fairgrounds and aquatic center; the northern area of Logan serves as a retail district with numerous shops and restaurants, including the Cache Valley Mall.

It is located adjacent to the easternmost part of the Great Salt Lake. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 6.0 square miles, all of it land. This climatic region is typified by large seasonal temperature differences, with warm to hot summers and cold winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Centerville has a humid continental climate, abbreviated "Dfb" on climate maps. Centerville was first settled by Thomas Grover in the fall of 1847; the community was known as Deuel Settlement but was renamed to Cherry Creek after the Cherry family arrived. After an 1850 survey found the town was located between Farmington and Bountiful, it became known as Centerville, it was this name that stuck. In 1849, Shadrach Roundy's family farmed in the general vicinity of Centerville, in the winter of 1849 he built a grist mill on Deuel Creek.
He made molasses from corn stalks at this mill. In 1851 a log school house was built in Centerville, but was replaced by an adobe building in 1854 by a much larger building in 1862. Centerville was the home of Latter-day Saint church leader B. H. Roberts. In 1869, the Utah Central Rail Road reached Centerville. In December 2011 a severe wind storm caused over $8 million damage; the first branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Centerville was organized in 1850 with Sanford Porter as president. In 1852, Centerville was made a ward with Sanford Porter as bishop. In 1868, an LDS Sunday School was organized with Nathan Tanner Porter as president.

Today, there are four stakes of the LDS Church in Centerville. The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection resides in Centerville on 1131 S. Main Street. Organized in 1963 as a mission of the Cathedral Church of St. Mark to serve the Episcopalians in the southern part of Davis County, Utah, ECOR's first services were held in the Bountiful Jeep Posse Clubhouse. Parish records indicate that there were 50 members at that time. Around 1967, the Very Reverend Wesley Frensdorff, Dean of St. Mark's, the Reverend Donald Mills facilitated the use of the Bountiful Community Church for worship; as a result, ECOR began using the small Danforth Chapel at BCC for the next 25 years. The two congregations shared facilities, committees, church school, one service each month. Problems, developed between the congregations and in 1993, ECOR separated from Bountiful Community Church to locate in an empty bank building in Centerville. In 2000, Project Jubilee—an expansion effort funded by the Episcopal Diocese of Utah—purchased land for a new church building just south of the bank.
Ground breaking for the new church took place in March 2001. The first service was held on Easter, 2002 and Bishop Carolyn Tanner Irish dedicated the building on May 18, 2002. Today, the church hosts Sunday service with Holy Eucharist weekly at 10:00 AM; the Reverend Lyn Zill Briggs presides as rector and priest of the congregation.

New Mexico is a state in the Southwestern region of the United States of America. It is one of the Mountain States and shares the Four Corners region with Utah and Arizona. With a population around two million, New Mexico is the 36th state by population. With a total area of 121,592 sq mi, it is the fifth-largest and sixth-least densely populated of the 50 states. Due to their geographic locations and eastern New Mexico exhibit a colder, alpine climate, while western and southern New Mexico exhibit a warmer, arid climate; the economy of New Mexico is dependent on oil drilling, mineral extraction, dryland farming, cattle ranching, lumber milling, retail trade. As of 2016–2017, its total gross domestic product was $95 billion with a GDP per capita of $45,465. New Mexico's status as a tax haven yields low to moderate personal income taxes on residents and military personnel, gives tax credits and exemptions to favorable industries; because of this, its film industry contributed $1.23 billion to its overall economy.
Due to its large area and economic climate, New Mexico has a large U. S. military presence marked notably with the White Sands Missile Range. Various U. S. national security agencies base their research and testing arms in New Mexico such as the Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories. During the 1940s, Project Y of the Manhattan Project developed and built the country's first atomic bomb and nuclear test, Trinity. Inhabited by Native Americans for many thousands of years before European exploration, it was colonized by the Spanish in 1598 as part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain. In 1563, it was named Nuevo México after the Aztec Valley of Mexico by Spanish settlers, more than 250 years before the establishment and naming of the present-day country of Mexico. After Mexican independence in 1824, New Mexico became a Mexican territory with considerable autonomy; this autonomy was threatened, however, by the centralizing tendencies of the Mexican government from the 1830s onward, with rising tensions leading to the Revolt of 1837.
At the same time, the region became more economically dependent on the United States. At the conclusion of the Mexican–American War in 1848, the United States annexed New Mexico as the U. S. New Mexico Territory, it was admitted to the Union as the 47th state on January 6, 1912. Its history has given New Mexico the highest percentage of Hispanic and Latino Americans, the second-highest percentage of Native Americans as a population proportion. New Mexico is home to part of the Navajo Nation, 19 federally recognized Pueblo communities of Puebloan peoples, three different federally recognized Apache tribes. In prehistoric times, the area was home to Ancestral Puebloans and the modern extant Comanche and Utes inhabited the state; the largest Hispanic and Latino groups represented include the Hispanos of New Mexico and Mexican Americans. The flag of New Mexico features the state's Spanish origins with the same scarlet and gold coloration as Spain's Cross of Burgundy, along with the ancient sun symbol of the Zia, a Puebloan tribe.
These indigenous, Mexican and American frontier roots are reflected in the eponymous New Mexican cuisine and the New Mexico music genre. New Mexico received its name long before the present-day nation of Mexico won independence from Spain and adopted that name in 1821. Though the name “Mexico” itself derives from Nahuatl, in that language it referred to the heartland of the Empire of the Mexicas in the Valley of Mexico far from the area of New Mexico, Spanish explorers used the term “Mexico” to name the region of New Mexico in 1563. In 1581, the Chamuscado and Rodríguez Expedition named the region north of the Rio Grande "San Felipe del Nuevo México"; the Spaniards had hoped to find wealthy indigenous Mexica cultures there similar to those of the Aztec Empire of the Valley of Mexico. The indigenous cultures of New Mexico, proved to be unrelated to the Mexicas, they were not wealthy, but the name persisted. Before statehood, the name "New Mexico" was applied to various configurations of the U.
S. territory, to a Mexican state, to a province of New Spain, all in the same general area, but of varying extensions. With a total area of 121,699 square miles, the state is the fifth-largest state of the US, larger than British Isles. New Mexico's eastern border lies along 103°W longitude with the state of Oklahoma, 2.2 miles west of 103°W longitude with Texas. On the southern border, Texas makes up the eastern two-thirds, while the Mexican states of Chihuahua and Sonora make up the western third, with Chihuahua making up about 90% of that; the western border with Arizona runs along the 109° 03'W longitude. The southwestern corner of the state is known as the Bootheel; the 37°N parallel forms the northern boundary with Colorado. The states of New Mexico, Colorado and Utah come together at the Four Corners in New Mexico's northwestern corner. New Mexico has no natural water sources

Triple-A or Class AAA is the highest level of play in Minor League Baseball in the United States and Mexico. Before 2008, Triple-A leagues fielded teams in Canada. A total of 30 teams play in the Triple-A International League and Pacific Coast League, with 14 teams in the IL and 16 in the PCL; the MLB-independent Mexican League fields 16 teams. Triple-A teams are located in large metropolitan areas that do not have Major League Baseball teams, such as San Antonio. Interleague play between the International League and Pacific Coast League occurs twice each season. In July, each league's All-Star team competes in the Triple-A All-Star Game. In September each league's regular season champions play each other in the Triple-A National Championship Game to determine an overall champion of Triple-A baseball; the Triple-A classification was created before the 1946 season. Prior to the top level of the minors had been designated as Double-A since 1912; the modern Double-A classification dates to 1946, when the former Class A1 level was renamed.
Triple-A teams' main purpose is to prepare players for the Major Leagues. ESPN wrote in 2010: Winning is nice, but secondary. It's much more important for a young prospect like outfielder Xavier Paul to get regular at-bats against lefties, or work on dropping down sacrifice bunts with a runner on first, than it is to take three of four from the Portland Beavers. Both young players and veterans play for Triple-A teams:There are the young prospects speeding through the organization on the fastest treadmill, the guys who used to be young prospects who are in danger of topping out in Triple-A, the 30-somethings trying to get back to the majors after an injury or a rough patch, the guys just playing a few more seasons because someone still wants them and they still want to. Players on the 40-man roster of a major league team are eligible for promotion to the major league club once the major league roster expands on September 1. For teams in contention for the postseason, these players create the flexibility needed to rest regular starters in late regular-season games.
For those not in contention, using such players lets the teams evaluate them under game conditions. Teams at this level are divided into three leagues: the International League, the Pacific Coast League, the MLB-independent Mexican League; the Mexican League fields teams throughout Mexico. The International League traditionally fielded teams in the Northeastern United States, now fields teams in the Midwest and South as well; the Pacific Coast League fielded teams on the West Coast, but now fields teams throughout the western part of the United States, as far east as Nashville, Tennessee. For much of the 20th century, the American Association, which consisted of teams in the Midwestern United States, was at this level, but it disbanded in 1997 and its teams were divided among the IL and PCL; each of the 30 Major League Baseball teams has an affiliation with one Triple-A team in the United States. However, Mexican Triple-A teams are not included in the organized farm team system. A Indicates current IL franchise's first year in current city.
Some franchises have prior history in other cities, or had local predecessor franchises at other levels that shared their current name. B Many stadiums have lawn seating; the Triple-A All-Star Game is a single game held between the two affiliated Triple-A leagues—the International League and the Pacific Coast League. Each league fields a team composed of the top players in their respective leagues as voted on by fans, the media, each club's field manager and general manager; the event has taken place every year since 1988 when the first Triple-A All-Star Game was played in Buffalo, New York. Prior to 1998, a team of American League-affiliated Triple-A All-Stars faced off against a team of National League-affiliated Triple-A All-Stars. Traditionally, the game has taken place on the day after the mid-summer Major League Baseball All-Star Game; the game is meant to mark a symbolic halfway-point in the season. Both Triple-A leagues share a common All-Star break, with no regular-season games scheduled for two days before the All-Star Game itself.
Some additional events, such as the All-Star Fan Fest and Triple-A Home Run Derby, take place each year during this break in the regular season. Since 2006, the annual Triple-A National Championship Game has been held to serve as a single championship game between the champions of the International League and Pacific Coast League to determine an overall champion of Triple-A baseball, it was held annually at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, known as the Bricktown Showdown. Since 2011, the game has been held in a different Triple-A city each year. Previous postseason interleague championships include the Junior World Series, Triple-A World Series, Triple-A Classic; as a part of professional baseball's pace of play initiatives implemented in 2015, 20-second pitch clocks entered use at Triple-A stadiums in 2015. In 2018, the time was shortened to 15 seconds. Other significant changes implemented in 2018 included beginning extra innings with a runner on second base and limiting teams to six mound visits during a nine-inning game.
Beginning in 2019, the number of mound visits is reduced to five, pitchers are required to face a minimum of three consecutive batters until the side is retired or the pitcher becomes injured and is unable to continue playing. Notes Triple-A Baseba
