Patch Clips: SF Giant Angel Pagan Drives Crowds Crazy at Taco Bell

Angel Pagan delighted crowds of thousands at the Taco Bell on El Camino Real in Redwood City Tuesday.

For many, it was a brush with true greatness.

San Francisco Giants outfielder Angel Pagan made a rare appearance at the Taco Bell on El Camino Real in Redwood City Tuesday, to the delight of at least 1,000 enthusiastic fans.

A line stretched nearly one block long just to get inside the store, and catch a glimpse. Those that were lucky also got a hug, a photo and an autograph.

It was all part of the deal Taco Bell made that, if any Giants player stole a base during any of the World Series games, Taco Bell would give out free Doritos Locos tacos to customers. Since Pagan stole second base during Game 2, it was only fitting he take part in the festivities.

Free tacos were given out at many participating stores between 2-6 p.m. Tuesday - however, the Redwood City location was the only one where they were given out by a World Series champ.

Check out our short video of the Angel Pagan madness at Taco Bell, above!

He's great! I've interviewed him before when he was a NY Met. I'm so happy and proud of him. What a sweetheart!

Aw, so sorry Diana! That's a bummer. The line must have been 1,000 people long by 2:45...and he was only scheduled to stay until 3:30.
