The day has arrived, Taco Bell fans. It’s time for this baseball postseason’s celebration of Steal a Base, Steal a Taco. Taco Bell’s annual tradition stipulates that if a player steals a base at any point during the World Series, America gets tacos. Well, just one taco. Form an orderly line, please.
Visit Taco Bell between 2 and 6 p.m. today to get a free Doritos Locos Taco. Missed the window? Order online or the Taco Bell app for in-store pickup to get one at any time today.
The crispy shell on the Doritos Locos variety of taco is basically a gigantic Nacho Cheese Dorito. Throw in some beef, cheese and lettuce, and that’s it. This simple yet innovative taco is priced $US1.89 ($3), but you can get yours for free for the low low price of standing in line with a bunch of other people who probably can’t name the player we’re honouring today.
Here’s the trivia everyone around you in line will be thrilled to hear:
Trea Turner, shortstop for the Washington Nationals, provided this honour to us by sliding into second base during Game 1 of the World Series against the Houston Astros. He did so in the very first inning. Thank you, Trea.
There are up to seven games in the World Series, but the first World Series in 1903 was actually a best-of-nine deal. That setup returned again between 1919 and 1921. Can you imagine trying to plan for a free taco promotional celebration with up to nine games in flux?
Trea Turner was born in 1993. Do you remember 1993? I sure do.
Most baseball bats are made from ash trees, but other options include hickory, maple, and even bamboo. What are the balls made of? Honestly the line isn’t long enough for us to get into that can of worms.
