Recreation Ballpark is a minor league baseball park in Visalia, California. With only 1,888 seats (2,468 capacity with 'pasture' grass lawn), it is the smallest MLB affiliated ballpark in the United States. The ballpark underwent its most extensive renovation in 2003 since its construction in 1946. The renovation was completed in 2009 and included an expanded seating on the third base side and an all new grandstand. The ballpark currently serves as the home to the Visalia Rawhide of the California League. The Rawhide is a Advanced-A minor league affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The City of Visalia completed the multimillion dollar renovation and expansion of Recreation Ballpark supported by a ten-year lease with the ballclub, the longest lease in franchise history, in 2009.
