This year, the deed was done in Game one (how's that for rhyming?) when Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox successfully stole second base after leading off for the home team on Tuesday night.
Prior to the 2018 World Series, Taco Bell announced that it was bringing back the "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" promotion.
To quote the Major League Baseball's Twitter account, in that moment Betts became "the Taco Hero baseball deserves". To claim yours, simply go to any participating Taco Bell location from 2 p.m.to 6 p.m. The next game will air at 7 p.m. Wednesday, with more chances for taco steals.
The Boston Red Sox didn't waste any time in Game 1 of the World Series, jumping on Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers for two runs in the first inning at Fenway Park. It's also a while-supplies-last situation, so if you want one, you'd better get to your local Taco Bell as early as possible.
According to a Boston.com report, Taco Bell's World Series "Steal A Base, Steal A Taco" promotion is pretty self-explanatory.
"Every year, we're overwhelmed with the excitement from our fans when combining America's favorite pastime with America's favorite tacos", Marisa Thalberg, Taco Bell's global chief brand officer, said in a statement.
