San Jose, CA- Churro time! The San Jose Giants are officially rebranding…for one evening.

The team will wear custom, Brandiose-designed San Jose Churros caps and jerseys and the first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a commemorative Paul "The Churro Man" bobblehead giveaway as a tribute to the beloved stadium vendor. As an added bonus, Paul "The Churro Man" will hand deliver 100 free churros to the first 100 fans through the stadium's gates.
