Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander admitted to a national audience that he eats a surprisingly large number of Taco Bell tacos the night before games.

The American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner appeared on the Conan O'Brien show Wednesday night.

Verlander told Conan he orders the same meal the night before each of his starts: three Crunchy Taco Supremes, a Cheesy Grodita Crunch and a Mexican Pizza – all without tomatoes.

"It results in your game-day diarrhea tradition?" Conan jokingly responded.

In all, that's about 1,540 calories.
