CBS Local — What’s better than a taco? How about a free taco?

Fast food chain Taco Bell is offering its customers a free Doritos Locos taco for a short time today starting at 2 p.m. local time. The restaurant chain is giving every American a chance to “steal” a taco as part of their annual promotion during the World Series.

Taco Bell has been pledging “all of America” would get a free taco if a player on either team steals a base during the fall classic. This year’s taco savior emerged early in the series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros when Houston’s Cameron Maybin swiped second base in Game 2. The fast food giant took to Twitter to celebrate their latest “taco hero.”

The massive giveaway wasn’t lost on the Astros outfielder either, who added his thoughts on the November 1 taco celebration after his team’s 7-6 win that night.

Perhaps the 11-year veteran will stop in for his own free Doritos-inspired snack before Houston takes on the Dodgers in a winner-take-all Game 7 Wednesday night. The promotion will run from 2-6 p.m. at all participating Taco Bell locations or while supplies of the tasty freebies last.
