Grizzlies General Manager Derek Franks said of Tacos Tuesday:
"Last season, there was some speculation that we might become the Fresno Tacos permanently, but to be sure, we're prouder than ever of the Fresno Grizzlies," said Tacos Grizzlies General Manager Derek Franks. "Coming off our first Pacific Coast League and Triple-A National Championship in franchise history, Growlifornia Republic is alive and growing. But we saw how special the Fresno Tacos were to our fans for just one night, and there's no harm in multiplying that pride times 10 this season."
The Grizzlies weren't done showing off new caps and uniforms this week. The team will wear mariachi-themed uniform to honor the 30th anniversary of the premiere of ¡Three Amigos! movie in 1986.
