The team name once belonged to the St. George RoadRunners of the Golden Baseball League (which has since been absorbed into the new North American League). The GBL RoadRunners played for four seasons from 2007 to 2010, before ownership, financial and stadium issues forced the team to fold after the 2010 season. It is now shared with the newest NAL franchise, the Henderson RoadRunners from Henderson, Nevada.
The Arizona RoadRunners were added to the AWL along with the Long Beach Armada and Team Mexico with the Sonora Pilots returning to the league. The AWL consists of some teams formerly identified as GBL franchises. They now play in the American Division along with the Blythe Heat, Long Beach Armada, Somerton Stingers and Yuma Scorpions.
