Attraction details
Owner description: The Visalia Rawhide are the most affordable family entertainment option in Tulare and Kings Counties. The Rawhide have embarked on a new era in Visalia Baseball, with more renovations to Rawhide Ballpark and a renewed affiliation with the Major League club. The Rawhide are proud to have been affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks since 2007. The Rawhide and the Diamondbacks signed a two year Player Development Contract (PDC) in September of the 2016 season that covers the 2017-2018 baseball seasons. The Rawhide and the city of Visalia continue to do everything necessary to ensure a long, productive relationship with the proud Diamondbacks franchise at Recreation Ballpark. The Rawhide are in the middle of the D-backs system, one of the most talented in all of baseball. There are two teams at higher levels of the minor leagues, and three at lower levels. Other clubs in the D-backs' chain include the Missoula Osprey (Rookie level), Hillsboro Hops (Short Season A), Kane County Cougars

I am not a fan of baseball, but, my grandson is. He is very found of this sport. During his summer breaks, he comes to Visalia to stay with us. We make it possible for him to see a couple of major or minor league games in Southern California. This summer we made it to Los Angeles once and one in Visalia. What a difference in cost, time and value received in return at both of these venues. Visalia's Rawhide Ballpark gives you 100% more fun for a half of the cost. I have learnt my lesson: if you respect your hard earned money, go locally, here in Visalia, have fun, and save your money.

Gotta love baseball in this intimate setting. Ballpark is home to the Visalia Rawhide - A League.

Often called Recreation Park - the stadium has been in place since the mid-1900's...and has been upgraded incrementally over time. Still a little funky but has a nice mix of new and cool touches.

If the team is in town - a ballgame in Visalia on a warm summer night with family and friends is a hit!

We were surprised at how small the stadium is, our local Junior College seats more people but it was plenty big enough to handle the fans that were there. Not a bad seat in the house and a fun atmosphere.

This ballpark has been around for over 70 years. It is now home to the minor league team Visalia Rawhide, which is affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks. It is a fun venue, good food and drink, entertainment between innings, and some really good baseball. A family friendly atmosphere with good seats throughout.

This ballpark was built the year I was born and my dad started taking me to the games when I was about 6 years old. Over the years it has been updated but is still the homey, comfortable place I have known and loved. It's a great place for all members of the family from little ones to the wisest grand and great grandparents. As for the baseball, you will see the best up and coming players on their journeys to the big leagues. Often major league players show up on their way back to their teams rehabbing after an injury. Once in a while that player is a Visalia boy! You never know.
