We have another attendance record to report: For the fifth time in six years, the Visalia Rawhide (High Class A; California League) set another all-time season attendance mark after last night’s win over the Modesto Nuts, finishing the season attracting 120,003 fans.
This is an increase of 4,682 fans from the 2013 season.
“The community’s support of baseball in Visalia is phenomenal,” said Rawhide General Manager Jennifer Pendergraft. “Professional baseball is such a rich tradition in this community. At games, it’s like being part of a large family — you see so many people that you know, and that feeling of being part of the team has been stronger than ever this year. It’s really been a fun season, and everyone is looking forward to the playoffs. We don’t want it all to end.”
And it won’t. The California League playoffs start on Wednesday at Rawhide Ballpark. They’ll take on the Stockton Ports at 6pm in the first of a best-of-3-game series. The winner will advance to play Bakersfield in a best-of-5 series. This will be the second year in a row that the Rawhide have made the league playoffs.
