Mookie Betts made some important MLB history during game 1 of the 2020 World Series.
For this year’s World Series, Taco Bell brought back their popular “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” promotion which allows fans to win a free taco when a player steals a base during the series.
Steal a Base, Steal a Taco is back. If a player steals a base this World Series, America gets a free Doritos Locos Tacos.

In the fifth inning of Game 1 on Tuesday night, LA Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts stole second base against the Tampa Bay Rays to trigger the taco freebie.
MOOKIE BETTS IS OUR HERO!!

Betts, who also stole a base during the 2018 World Series, became the first player to win free tacos for America twice.
