ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, again will be celebrating one of the most exciting moments in America's favorite pastime by giving away one of America's favorite foods: pizza. 40,000 of them, to be exact.
All registered MLB.com users will be eligible to receive a free pizza. Domino's will give away 20,000 pizzas after each of the first two no-hitters during the 2015 MLB regular season. Spurred by furious social media activity and fan excitement, last year's first two no-hitters, which took place less than four weeks apart, saw the entire allotment of pizzas claimed in under ten minutes combined.
"What better way to celebrate one of the greatest achievements in sports – the no-hitter – than with free pizza?" said Tim McIntyre, Domino's spokesperson. "Domino's is excited to be partnering with MLB.com to continue giving baseball fans a delicious way to get in on the excitement."
The first 20,000 baseball fans who visit and log in to MLB.com/dominos beginning at 3 p.m. EDT on the business day following the no-hitter will receive a code for a free, two-topping medium Handmade Pan Pizza (carryout only) when they order online from dominos.com. The DomiNoNo offer for each no-hitter is available until 20,000 codes are given away, or for five days starting at 3 p.m. EDT on the business day following the no-hitter. The promotion is valid after each of the first two no-hitters of the 2015 MLB regular season.
To further spur baseball fans' enthusiasm when a no-hitter is in progress, the promotion will again leverage multiple digital platforms. When a no-hitter is in progress through the sixth inning of any game, fans will be encouraged to follow #DomiNoNo and @MLB on Twitter for up-to-the-moment game alerts or watch live look-ins on MLB.com or the award-winning MLB.com At Bat mobile app.
