Taijuan Walker of Arizona Diamondbacks dishes out free tacos to fans, team

Arizona Diamondbacks righthander Taijuan Walker was serving up them up at Salt River Fields Monday.

Before the D-Backs’ game against the Colorado Rockies, Walker dished out free tacos to fans and teammates from a custom taco truck.

Walker uses a recipe handed down from his mother, Nellie Garcia, and has added a few wrinkles of his own. His specialty: bison tacos.

“This is what spring training is about – interacting with the fans – and it’s their chance to get up close,” said Walker, who helped arrange the giveaway and promoted it on social media. “Doing something like this is just fun.”

The bison tacos got a big thumbs up from reliever Archie Bradley, who said, “My mouth is on fire, bro,” he told Azcentral.

“I like tacos because when you eat them, all the stuff pops out,” Bradley said. “That means there’s stuff all over my face right now. I’m good to go.”

“I’m thoroughly impressed with it,” lefthander Andrew Chafin said. “This is absolutely fantastic.”

By the time manager Torey Lovullo got to the truck, Tai’s Tacos were sold out, but a D-Back co-worker was willing to share another.

“Good job, Tai,” Lovullo said. “I can endorse this.”
