World Series Will Again Be Taco Bell's Runway For 'Steal A Base' Promotion

Special to NYSportsJournalism.com

October 16, 2017: Taco Bell is encouraging stealing and rewarding people if it happens.

The Mexican-food fast-feeder is back in the World Series with "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco,” trading free Tacos after a player becomes the first to steal a base during the 2017 World Series presented by YouTube TV.

This marks the sixth time in ten years that Taco Bell and MLB have teamed up for this promotion

Taco Bell said it would support the campaign with integrated marketing efforts including a dedicated TV spot, digital and social media.

According to Taco Bell, “America's 2017 Taco Hero will join the likes of Jacoby Ellsbury, Jason Bartlett, Ángel Pagán, Lorenzo Cain and Francisco Lindor (last year) who have all won free tacos for America in past World Series and gone down in ‘Steal a Base, Steal a Taco’ history.

"For the sixth year, a stolen base in the World Series will bring free tacos to America, along with the title of 'Taco Hero' for that one player who makes it happen," Marisa Thalberg, CMO for Taco Bell Corp., said in a statement. "It's something for which we can all feel good cheering, no matter which team you support."

The World Series begins Oct. 24.

If a base is stolen during Game One or Game Two of this year's World Series, America will get a free Doritos Locos Taco on Wednesday, Nov. 1 (2 PM-6 PM local time) at all participating Taco Bell locations.

If the first stolen base of the World Series takes place in Game Three or later, America will score a free Doritos Locos Taco on Tuesday, Nov. 7 (from 2 PM-6 PM local time) at all participating U.S. Taco Bell locations.

(Full details here.)

According to Noah Garden, evp-business for MLB, "Everyone has their favorite team and favorite player, but free tacos are something all baseball fans can root for.

"We're happy to collaborate with Taco Bell on this unique promotion again as we all look forward to another exciting Fall Classic."
