Betts also had the first stolen base in the 2018 World Series while playing for the Red Sox.

All-time taco stealers

Betts' stolen base netted free tacos for fans across America as part of Taco Bell's "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" promotion that returned for the 2020 Fall Classic. Fans can redeem their free Doritos Locos Tacos if they download and sign up for the Taco Bell app. Otherwise, they will be available at participating Taco Bell locations today, as supplies last.

The taco-providing stolen base marked the third stolen base this postseason for Betts. He also had 10 during the regular season.

While Betts' speed is already paying off for taco-loving fans, it was also a good sign for the World Series champion Dodgers. After all, teams with the Taco Hero are 7-2 in the last nine World Series to feature the "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" promotion, including Boston's 2018 victory after Betts' first taco-winning swipe.
