We All Get Free Taco Bell if Someone Steals a Base During the World Series
Update: Cameron Maybin of the Houston Astros stole a base during the second game of the World Series on Oct. 25. Head on over to Taco Bell on Nov. 1 to get your reward for his hustle!
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 in the first two games of the World Series, which starts Tuesday, Oct. 24, head to Taco Bell on Wednesday, Nov. 1 for your reward.
If a base is stolen in games three through seven, you can pick up your free Taco Bell on Tuesday, Nov. 7. The tricky part is you need to visit Taco Bell between 2-6 p.m. to get your freebie.
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, Cleveland Indians player Francisco Lindor stole a base and earned the gratitude of millions of Penny Hoarders. Prior to that, the last “taco hero” was the Kansas City Royals’ Lorenzo Cain in the 2015 World Series.
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.
