This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll write a quick blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, when I return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and perhaps even love. On Friday night I visited Visalia, California, the fifth stop on my sprawling 10-team California-Nevada-Idaho-Washington road trip.
August 4: Visalia Rawhide (Class A Advanced affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks)
Opponent: Inland Empire 66ers, 7:00 p.m.
Recreation Park, from the outside:
Ballpark Characters: Rawhide general manager Jennifer Pendergraft with her two and half week-old son, Maverick.
Your groundbreaking and subversive ballpark joke of the day, Visalia Rawhide https://t.co/MOmKqfOXKp
