In a nod to local cuisine, the San Antonio Missions (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) will play as the San Antonio Puffy Tacos during a May 22-24 series. Additionally, the Missions have announced May 22 as National Puffy Taco Day.
“When people think of San Antonio’s food scene, they think of puffy tacos,” Missions President Burl Yarbrough said. “The puffy taco is a dish that is unique to our great city of San Antonio and is deserving of national recognition. These jerseys will showcase a little bit of what makes San Antonio so special to fans and the rest of the baseball world.”
The bulk of the jersey is a puffy taco shell with the number on the back and “SA” logo on the front burned on. The essential ingredients of the puffy taco spill out on the front of the jersey and give the players a taste of delicious sustenance while clamoring for the taste of victory throughout the ball game.
The Texas flag flies high on the left sleeve while the right sleeve and hat will sport a special puffy taco logo. The guacamole green cap with navy blue bill meshes well with the taco shell and ingredients to bring the entire ensemble together.
The Puffy Tacos branding will be used over a three-game home series against the Iowa Cubs.
