Baseball is back and the 2019 California League Champions, Visalia Rawhide, are anxious to play and defend their title.
Opening day is May 4th!
Unfortunately single game tickets are not available at this time but the Rawhide hope that changes in the next few months. Their capacity is limited to 20% as of March 2021 so only half season and full season ticket packages are available. These would make a great purchase for local businesses and corporations who want to reward their employees with a day of baseball.
“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 ten year Player Development Contract (PDC) in February of the 2021 season that covers the 2021-2030 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 the first stop for prospects of the D-backs system, one of the most talented in all of baseball. Other clubs in the D-backs’ chain include the Hillsboro Hops (Single-A), Amarillo Sod Poodles (Double-A), and Reno Aces (Triple-A.
The Rawhide play 136 games against their Low-A West rivals, stretching from Stockton and San Jose in the north to Lake Elsinore and Inland Empire in the south. The Rawhide play in the Southern Division along with the Inland Empire 66ers (Angels), Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (Dodgers) and Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres).
All of the players on the Rawhide and the other Arizona affiliates are under contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. It is the Diamondbacks who supply the coaches and instruction for their affiliates as they try to mold their prospects into successful big-leaguers. The Rawhide do not control player movement within the organization, so it’s important to come to the park early and often to see the brightest stars of tomorrow, today!” For more information on the team go to
