ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday night, the 2015 MLB season saw its second no-hitter enter the books, this time by Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer. For MLB.com registered users, the no-hitter means 20,000 free pizzas from Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery and digital ordering technology.
Beginning TODAY at 3 p.m. (EDT), the first 20,000 MLB.com registered users who visit MLB.com/dominos and log in will receive a free medium two-topping Handmade Pan Pizza (redeemable for carryout orders only) when they order online from Dominos.com. The Domino's DomiNoNo offer will be available for five consecutive days or until 20,000 codes are given away.
To continue the excitement around this great sports achievement, Domino's and MLB.com have decided to extend this promotion and will now give away 20,000 free pizzas for EVERY no-hitter for the remainder of the 2015 MLB regular season.
"We're thrilled to extend our partnership with MLB.com," said Tim McIntyre, Domino's spokesperson. "During previous DomiNoNo offers, the entire allotments of free pizza codes given out for each no-hitter were claimed in just a few minutes, so we're excited to give even more baseball fans a chance to get in on the excitement."
To further spur baseball fans' enthusiasm when a no-hitter is in progress, the promotion will continue to 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.
