On the heels of combining two of America’s favorite flavors to create the biggest taco launch of 2012 – the Doritos® Locos Tacos – Taco Bell® is now pairing the spirit of its tagline
with one of the biggest sporting events of 2012: the Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series.
Today announced, MLB and Taco Bell are teaming up to give everyone in America the chance to get the best selling taco of 2012 free. In its biggest MLB promotion of the year, Taco Bell’s “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco,” will reward everyone in the U.S. with the opportunity to enjoy a free Taco Bell Doritos® Locos Tacos if any player steals a base during the World Series, which begins this Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 8:00 p.m. (ET) on FOX.
If the first stolen base occurs during Games One through Four, America will get free Doritos® Locos Tacos on Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time at all participating Taco Bell locations. If the first stolen base occurs during Games Five through Seven, America can redeem their free tacos on Monday, Nov. 5 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time at all participating Taco Bell locations. Fans are invited to visit
beginning Oct. 24 for more information on how to receive a free taco. Limit one (1) Free Taco per person.
“Baseball in October is a magical time, and we want to give America something to rally behind together, regardless of their favorite team,” said Brian Niccol, Chief Marketing & Innovation Officer, Taco Bell Corp. “We can think of no better way to celebrate America’s favorite pastime than by giving out what America tells us is their favorite taco, Doritos Locos Tacos!"
Since first partnering with Major League Baseball in 2004, Taco Bell® has given away millions of free tacos to Americans with its highly successful “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” campaign, which began in 2007 and returned in 2008. This year, the brand is giving everyone in the U.S. the chance to get not only a free taco, but the one and only Doritos® Locos Tacos.
