2021 World Series: Braves’ Ozzie Albies wins free tacos for fans with Game 1 stolen base

It didn’t take long for baseball fans to earn free tacos thanks to Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies. A first-inning steal from Albies in Tuesday’s World Series Game 1 means Taco Bell, as part of their long-running promotion, will offer a free Doritos Locos Taco to every customer on Nov. 4. 

Albies stole second in the top of the first inning with his team up 1-0 — thanks to a Jorge Soler home run — over the Houston Astros. Austin Riley doubled to left center on the ensuing at-bat, allowing Albies to score and revel in his Taco Tuesday glory. 

This is the ninth World Series featuring Doritos’ Steal a Base, Steal a Taco promotion. Albies ensured fans got their tacos early by swiping a base in the first inning, but he’s not the fastest to secure the free grub. Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner needed only three pitches to steal a base during Game 1 of the 2019 World Series. 

The Nationals eventually overcame the Astros in a seven-game World Series battle. Albies is hoping history repeats itself, with him securing free tacos for the fans and a title over the Astros shortly after.
