According to a Boston.com report, Taco Bell's World Series "Steal A Base, Steal A Taco" promotion is pretty self-explanatory.

Following Red Sox's 8-4 Game 1 victory over the Dodgers on Tuesday night, Holt responded to the fast-food chain's free Doritos Locos Tacos promise on November 1., honoring the first base stolen - accomplished by Mookie Betts - during the World Series.

You know how it goes - one person steals something, everyone gets something for free - maybe not the most morally correct principle to abide by but we mean, it worked for Robin Hood, so why can't it work for Taco Bell?

Mookie Betts singled to lead off the home half of the first inning against the Dodgers on Tuesday night.

"Every year, we're overwhelmed with the excitement from our fans when combining America's favorite pastime with America's favorite tacos", Marisa Thalberg, Taco Bell's global chief brand officer, said in a statement.

One of those who played under him, Rio Ferdinand, said recently the Three Lions would have won a World Cup if he had stayed on. BT Sport presenter Mark Pougatch subsequently confirmed that the broadcaster had cancelled its football results show.

Boston's Mookie Betts stole a base in the first inning of the opener to ensure free tacos would be available.

This has been your annual reminder that Taco Bell exists and maintains some business savvy. "I'll let everyone else get it", Holt told the interviewer Tuesday. "I'm sorry, Taco Bell".

Taco Bell is giving away the free Doritos Locos Tacos on Thursday, November 1 from 2 p.m.to 6 p.m. local time.

Though the franchises technically met in the 1916 World Series - back when the Dodgers were known as the Brooklyn Robins - this is the first literal matchup between the Red Sox and the Dodgers in the Fall Classic.
