IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2012 – No. 16 on his uniform; No. 1 in America’s hearts. With his first stolen base of the postseason, San Francisco Giants’ outfielder Angel Pagan won free Doritos® Locos Tacos for America.
Taco Bell® promised with its “Steal A Base, Steal A Taco” offer that if any player stole a base during the 2012 Major League Baseball World Series, it would give away its best selling taco to everyone in America. During the bottom of the eighth inning of Game 2, Pagan – who had 29 stolen bases in 2012 – effectively stole free Doritos® Locos Tacos for the entire country.
