Thanks to the World Series, you can get a free Doritos Locos taco from Taco Bell on Nov. 1.

All you have to do is walk into any participating Taco Bell between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Just ask for your free taco, and you can walk right back out the door—you don’t need to buy anything.

So why is Taco Bell doing this? Well, they run a promotion called “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco.”

During the World Series, if someone steals a base, everyone gets a free taco!

This year, Cameron Maybin of the Houston Astros stole the first base of the series. Which means it is now literally raining tacos in America.

He was super stoked about it, too.

On Facebook, he wrote: “What’s better than a World Series win in extra innings? Free TACOS! Proud to be America’s #StealABaseStealATaco guy. You get a taco, you get a taco, you ALL get free Tacos – on November 1st at a Taco Bell near you!” He even used the infamous Oprah GIF to express his feelings.

In a different Facebook post, he wrote that his new nickname should be #TacoHero and that he wanted to put that on the back of his jersey.
