There are arguments that can be made for players of that past, but watching him on a daily basis truly is a gift as a fan of the sport.

Betts has been down this road before: He stole a base in Game 1 of the 2018 World Series while Taco Bell was running that same promotion when he played for the Boston Red Sox against his current team, the Dodgers.

Until now the low for a Game 1 had been San Francisco's 7-1 win over Kansas City on October 21, 2012, viewed by an average of 12,191,000 on a Tuesday night.

This is the second time Betts has stolen a base in the World Series, and triggered the taco perk.

For a ninth-straight year, Taco Bell has partnered with the Major League Baseball for the "steal a base, steal a taco" campaign. He would say the Dodgers winning is the most important thing, but what an achievement.

Los Angeles' 8-3 win received a 5.1 rating and was seen by an average of 9,195,000 viewers on Fox from 8:06 p.m.to 11:41 p.m. EDT on Tuesday night, Nielsen Media Research said Wednesday.
