Taco Bell Just Gave Us All a Reason to Watch Baseball
Spoiler alert: it involves free food.
Taco Bell has teamed up with Major League Baseball again to for their “Steal a Base, Steal a Breakfast” promotion, offering up a free A.M. Crunchwrap to all of the United States should any player steal a base during the World Series.
If a base is stolen during Games One or Two, a free A.M. Crunchwrap will be given out to anyone on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 7 to 11 AM. local time at all participating Taco Bell locations. If no player steals a base during the first two games, but a base is stolen during Games Three through Seven, fans will still be able to get a complimentary A.M. Crunchwrap on Tuesday, Nov. 10 during the restaurants’ breakfast hours.
In 2007, Taco Bell partnered with Major League Baseball and offered a free taco to every American when Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox stole a base in Game Two of that year’s World Series.
“It’s fun to see Taco Bell bring this promotion back for baseball fans during the World Series,” said Noah Garden, MLB Executive Vice President of Business, in a statement. “Our fans have really enjoyed it in the past and I’m sure they will be pulling for another stolen base this year.”
In other words: our stomachs are riding on this, boys!
The World Series begins Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8 PM ET on FOX.
