Founded in 1946 and operating almost continuously out of the same stadium, the Rawhide stand as one of the most historic Minor League teams on the West Coast, and indeed in all of the United States. Although the franchise has gone through numerous name changes and affiliate changes and the fan experience and facilities have evolved with the standards of the times, Valley Strong Ballpark remains an intimate, homey and often exhilarating place to catch a ballgame.
