Triple A team to wear taco jerseys with taco hats for Taco Night

Tuesday July 21st, 2015

The Fresno Grizzlies are ditching their usual nickname for one night in August and becoming the Fresno Tacos. 

The Grizzlies are hosting their fifth annual Taco Truck Throwdown at the ballpark on Aug. 6 and celebrating the occasion by wearing jerseys with “Tacos” across the front. They’re pairing it with a hat that replaces the Grizzlies logo with a picture of a taco, which is available for purchase on the Grizzlies’ website for $36. 

Naturally, the team held the press conference announcing the delicious duds in front of a taco truck. 

These are much better than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles uniforms the Grizzlies rolled out last year.
