Visalia Rawhide Receive Affiliate Invitation from Arizona Diamondbacks
VISALIA, CA -The Visalia Rawhide Baseball Club received an invitation on Wednesday from the Arizona Diamondbacks to sign a Player Development License as their Single-A affiliate. The license, not yet distributed by Major League Baseball, is expected to cover a ten- year term.
"We are very pleased and honored to receive this invitation from the Diamondbacks," said Sam Sigal, Vice President of First Pitch Entertainment, owners of the Visalia Rawhide. "Affiliated baseball has been in Visalia dating back to 1946. Since 2007, the ballclub and the Diamondbacks have truly had a great partnership, highlighted by the Rawhide's 2019 California League Championship. We are excited about the potential opportunity to continue such a great relationship, and carry on the tradition of Minor League Baseball in our community."
The Player Development Licenses are expected to be completed and sent out by Major League Baseball in the coming weeks.
"Once we receive the full details of the License," said Sigal, "we will evaluate the proposal carefully to assure that it works for the team, the fans, and the community."
