(WXIN) – The only thing better than your favorite team stealing a base during the World Series is getting rewarded for it. On Tuesday, Taco Bell announced that the highly anticipated “steal a base, steal a taco” promotion is making a return for the 11th year during the 2022 World Series.
As always, Taco Bell will give fans a free Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco if any MLB player manages to steal a base. However, this year Taco Bell is changing things up to make the promotion a home run.
While fans have previously had to wait up to a week to redeem the free taco, this year Taco Bell is giving its Taco Bell Rewards members the ability to grab their taco early. Fans who sign up for Taco Bell rewards by the start of the World Series or within 10 days after the stolen base can get their free taco the same night.
Taco Bell is also offering rewards members the ability to predict who they think will steal the first base and become America’s 2022 Taco Hero. If they get it right, the fan will receive an upgraded reward of a medium fountain drink with their Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos. Fans have until 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 27 to make their prediction.
In case you were wondering: here are the Taco Heroes for the 2007-2021 promotions:
