Recreation Ballpark is a minor league baseball stadium in Visalia, California. It currently serves as the home to the Visalia Rawhide of the California League. The Rawhide is an Advanced-A minor league affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
With only 1,888 seats, plus capacity for another 580 fans on a lawn, it is the smallest MLB-affiliated ballpark.
The ballpark was built by the city of Visalia in 1946. In 2003, the stadium began a six-year renovation and expansion that added a grandstand and more seats on the third-base side.
From 2014 to 2018, Recreation Park hosted Divisions I-VI of the California Interscholastic Federation Central Section Baseball Championships.
