FRESNO, Cali. — The Houston Astros triple-A affiliate, the Fresno Grizzlies, is changing their team name to the Fresno Tacos. But only for a day.

Many sports teams are known for changing their uniforms for a good cause, like wearing pink uniforms for breast cancer awareness. But the Grizzlies are supporting a different occasion.

In honor of the Taco Truck Throwdown, the Grizzlies will be the Tacos on Aug. 6…complete with new jerseys, and hats for sale.


The Taco Truck Throwdown is an annual event in which taco trucks from around the area come together to supply the city with delicious tacos.
