'Steal A Base, Steal A Taco': Mookie Betts Earns Everyone In America A Free Taco With Stolen Base

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — With the return of the World Series, fast-food chain Taco Bell is bringing back its "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" promotion.

And it didn't take long with Dodger right fielder Mookie Betts stealing not one, but two bases in the bottom of the fifth during Game 1 of the World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays.

But this isn't Betts' first time scoring everyone in America a free taco. He did it back in 2018 as a right fielder for the Boston Red Sox — against the Dodgers.

According to the restaurant's website, if a player steals a base during "any game of the 2020 World Series," it will offer "every person in the 50 U.S. and District of Columbia" a free taco. Customers can get the tacos at participating restaurants or through the app on Oct. 28.
