WASHINGTON — The only thing that makes a World Series Game 1 win better is knowing we also get free tacos!
As part of Taco Bell's "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" promotion, we get a free Doritos® Locos taco when a base is stolen during World Series play, and thanks to the Nationals' shortstop Trea Turner, free tacos we will have.
The free taco can be redeemed at participating stores between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Oct. 30, or fans can order online for in-store pickup all day.
Turner's infield single to leadoff the game, followed by an immediate stolen second base, earns him the title of Taco Hero. The Nationals went on to win Game 1 against the Astros 5-4.
Turner stole 35 bases during the regular season, so it's not a surprise that he was able to get us free tacos right away.
Turner joins the ranks of Taco Heroes like Mookie Betts, Cameron Maybin, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jason Bartlett, Ángel Pagán, Lorenzo Cain and Francisco Lindor. Past Taco Heroes have gone 5-2 in the World Series.
Taco Bell also sweetened the deal this year by partnering with BetMGM to allow fans to place bets on who they thought would be 2019's Taco Hero. Seventeen percent of betters put their trust in Trea.
Oct. 30 shall henceforth be known in D.C. as Trea Taco Day!
