The American League finally is giving free pizza to the fans.
For the first time since Domino's and Major League Baseball Advanced Media teamed up on the #DomiNoNo promotion starting with the 2013 season, an AL club has delivered. The most recent AL no-hitter had been at Seattle on Aug. 15, 2012, and this time it was at Seattle again on Aug. 12, 2015 -- following a streak of 12 consecutive no-hitters to come from the National League.
Starting at 3 p.m. ET today, the first 20,000 baseball fans who visit and log in at MLB.com/dominos will receive a code for a free two-topping medium Handmade Pan Pizza.
The DomiNoNo offer is available until 20,000 codes are given away, or for five days starting at 3 p.m. ET on the business day following the no-hitter.
"What better way to celebrate one of the greatest achievements in sports -- the no-hitter -- than with free pizza?" Domino's spokesperson Tim McIntryre said. "Domino's is excited to be partnering with MLB.com to continue giving baseball fans a delicious way to get in on the excitement."
This was the fourth no-hitter and Domino's free pizza giveaway in 2015 -- the most in any season during the #DomiNoNo campaign -- following the ones by the Giants, Nationals and Phillies earlier this year. The pizza codes went quick then, so act fast. There have been 243 no-hitters since 1901, an average of more than two per season.
When a no-hitter is in progress through the sixth inning of any game this regular season, you will be encouraged to follow @MLB on Twitter and use the #DomiNoNo hashtag for up-to-the-moment game alerts or watch live look-ins on MLB.com or the award-winning MLB.com At Bat app.
