The Visalia Rawhide baseball team is looking for local ladies at least 70 years of age to participate in its annual "Belle of the Ballpark" pageant on Wednesday, May 15.
At the event, participants will be asked to participate in several in-game "challenges," including a runway walk, cookie baking contest, cheek pinching show-down, and "white t-shirt contest" (decorating a white Rawhide t-shirt).
This annual event began in 2011 to celebrate the team's 65th anniversary. During the team's research, it was discovered that beauty pageants were held at the ballpark in the 1950s and 1960s. The team decided to bring back that tradition... featuring those same ladies!
The event was so successful that the pageant has become an annual ballpark tradition.
