Editor’s note: Everyone gets a free Doritos Locos Taco from Taco Bell today! Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts stole a base during the first inning in the first game of the World Series. So head over to Taco Bell between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. to get your free taco!

So your favorite baseball team didn’t make it to the postseason? It’s OK — neither did mine.

But even if you’re not invested in this year’s World Series matchup, there’s a good reason to pay attention: potential free food.

If someone steals a base during the World Series, Taco Bell will reward fans with a free Doritos Locos Taco.

If a player steals a base during any game of the World Series — which starts Tuesday, Oct. 23 — head to Taco Bell on Thursday, Nov. 1 between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. for your reward.

Don’t want to stay up late watching baseball? You can always check Taco Bell’s Steal a Base, Steal a Taco site for confirmation of your free taco payday.

The Doritos Locos Taco usually costs $1.49. One taco per customer, regardless of how many bases get stolen.

There’s no guarantee you’ll get to redeem this crunchy reward. Last year, Houston Astros player Cameron Maybin stole a base and earned the gratitude of millions of Penny Hoarders. The year before that, it was Cleveland Indians player Francisco Lindor, and in 2015, it was the Kansas City Royals’ Lorenzo Cain.

But the 2013 and 2014 World Series? There were no free tacos — womp, womp.

Tensions can run high during World Series play, but one thing’s for sure: These teams will do anything for the title. I’d expect at least a few stolen base attempts.

So it might be worth keeping your eye on this World Series, if for nothing else but the free Taco Bell potential.
