VIVA STAFF REPORT - Stolen Base, Stolen Tacos. In the bottom of the 4th inning of Game Two at the Major League Baseball World Series in Boston, Boston Red Sox centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury stole second base and became the first ever Major League Baseball player to steal millions of tacos for America. As promised, Taco Bell, the Official Quick Service Restaurant of Major League Baseball, is prepared to serve millions of Americans a free Seasoned Beef Crunchy Taco as part of its "Steal A Base, Steal A Taco" MLB World Series promotion.
Fans can visit any participating Taco Bell on Tuesday, October 30, 2007 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (local time) and claim their free taco.
"We were cheering alongside the entire nation, knowing someone would steal a taco for America," said David Ovens, chief marketing officer, Taco Bell Corp. "While some are fans of the long ball and others might enjoy a pitcher's duel, we can now safely say that everyone is a fan of the stolen base."
