Steal a Base, Steal a Taco?

Irvine-based Taco Bell Corp. announced this morning that it will give a free taco to “everyone in America” if any player steals a base during the 2007 Major League Baseball World Series, which–as usual–won't include the Dodgers.

The item at stake is the crunchy beef taco valued at 77 cents.

Here's the particulars: If a base is stolen in games one or two, the free tacos will be available on Tuesday, Oct. 30. If a base is stolen in games three through seven, the tacos will be available on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Consumers must visit a Taco Bell between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on the redemption date.

And no: company officials say you can't have more than one for free.

R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
