Tai’s Taco truck hands out free tacos courtesy of D-backs’ Walker

Mar 15, 2018, 7:48 AM

Excuse us, Taco Tuesday, because Taijuan Walker is here to corner the taco market on a Monday.

This past Monday at Salt River Fields, the Arizona Diamondbacks’ pitcher got his own taco truck painted up and prepped to hand out free tacos to fans before the D-backs’ game against the Colorado Rockies.

Walker and his wife, Heather, gave out two types of tacos, and these weren’t your standard tacos: They were cooked to Walker’s own recipes, one of which was a soft taco served with bison meat.

To check it out, Arizona Sports’  Derek Montilla dropped into the pregame grub session to check out the latest D-backs snacks.
