"The marketing department at Taco Bell was thinking outside the bun with a World Series inspired offer, now it's time to pony up. The fast food giant said if an eligible base was stolen during the series it would give a free beef taco to everyone in the U.S. Last night in game one of the series, Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Jason Bartlett made the 90 foot trip, stealing second base and instantly creating a "pay up moment" for Taco Bell. Under the rules anyone who shows up at a Taco Bell restaurant between two p.m. and six p.m. local time on Tuesday, October 28th will receive a free Crunchy Seasoned Beef Taco simply by requesting one. Despite the stolen base, the Rays went on to lose the game, 3-2 to the Philadelphia Phillies."
