Free Doritos Locos Tacos are available at any Taco Bell location until 6 p.m. today. The deal is thanks to Houston Astros outfielder Cameron Maybin, who stole a base in game two of the World Series Oct. 25.
Maybin’s steal during the 11th inning caused a wave of excitement through Dodger Stadium for more than his outstanding play.
Taco Bell began a chain promotion in 2007 when they partnered with Major League Baseball to draw audience attention to games with the possibility of free food. The promotion slogan is “Steal a base, steal a taco.”
The giveaway comes only after the first base of the World Series is stolen. Tacos are limited to one per customer.
Cal Poly students are flocking to San Luis Obispo’s Taco Bell at 397 Santa Rosa St.
“Everything tastes better when it’s free,” construction management senior Jay Doyle said.
