Mookie Betts wins everyone a free Doritos Locos Taco from Taco Bell for second time

The stolen base means free Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos for everyone in America.

"TACOS ON ME!" the right fielder tweeted out Wednesday morning. That set up Betts' Taco Tuesday heroics in the fifth. The deal is a key strategy for bringing in new, younger customers, especially first time visitors, reports sports business publication Front Office Sports.

In 2018 the right fielders Mookie Betts was part of the Boston Red Sox that took down the Los Angeles Dodgers. So, if you get one now via the app, and another one in-store on October 28, you can technically get two free tacos this year. But most importantly, he's the first player in baseball history to win everyone free tacos on two separate occasions.

The caption on Taco Bell's Twitter post read, "Our Taco Hero has stolen a base". The free taco offer is also "valid for store pickup all redemption day via online or the mobile app, for registered users of tacobell.com or the Taco Bell App". Taco Bell announced the official date soon after Betts stole the bag.

During Game 1 of the World Series against the Rays, Betts drew a walk and stole two bases.

Betts, meanwhile, is well aware of the promotion, and tweeted out a message celebrating everyone's free taco.

"This is the legalese, via Taco Bell's website: "(C) onsumers must visit any participating Taco Bell restaurant in one of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.
