Thanks to the renovations at Recreation Park, the Visalia Rawhide (High Class A; California League) and Arizona Diamondbacks extended their affiliation through 2012.
“We’re thrilled with our affiliation with the Visalia Rawhide and the City of Visalia,” D-backs’ Director Player Development Mike Berger said. “We have been witness to continual improvements to the facility and the operations in each of our four years here. We are excited to extend our relationship at this early date with both the ballclub and the wonderful community of Visalia.”
“We’re fortunate to have terrific working relationships with our partners—the City of Visalia and the Arizona Diamondbacks,” said Rawhide President Tom Seidler. “We’re proud to now have a proper home for affordable family entertainment in the greater Visalia community, and a proper home for the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Major League stars of the future.”
The announcement of a new PDC on April 23rd is the earliest that the Visalia franchise has secured an extension in over 20 years. From 1992-2006, a revolving door of Major League clubs declined to renew their PDCs with Visalia due to poor facilities.
