Taco-loving team offers hats inspired by Trump supporter’s taco truck warning

Tuesday September 6th, 2016

When a Donald Trump supporter warned last week that a lack of immigration control would lead to “taco trucks on every corner,” it had the opposite of its intended effect. 

Marco Gutierrez, a Mexican immigrant, meant it to be ominous but it actually sounds wonderful, especially to the Fresno Grizzlies. 

The Grizzlies have been holding taco-themed promotions for years now and took the extra step this year of wearing special taco jerseys for every Tuesday home game

So when Gutierrez gave his dire warning, the Grizzlies saw a marketing opportunity.
