The FINANCIAL — The third no-hitter of the 2015 Major League Baseball season was thrown on Saturday night. For MLB.com registered users, that no-hitter, courtesy of Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels, means 20,000 free pizzas from Domino’s Pizza , the recognized world leader in pizza delivery.
Beginning on July 27 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, two-topping medium 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. This year’s first two no-hitters saw the entire allotment of pizzas for each Domino’s DomiNoNo claimed, on average, in just a few minutes, according to Domino’s Pizza.
To continue the excitement around this great sports achievement, Domino’s and MLB.com will give away 20,000 free pizzas for every no-hitter for the remainder of the 2015 MLB regular season.
“We’re thrilled to be able to celebrate the third no-hitter of the season with free pizza,” said Tim McIntyre, Domino’s spokesperson. “The DomiNoNo partnership with MLB.com is a great way to continue giving baseball fans a delicious way 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.
