Don't mess with sports fans when it comes to pizza.
Especially free pizza.
Major League Baseball and Domino's teamed up for a promotion to give away 20,000 free pizzas to people who have an MLB.com account after the first and second no-hitters of the 2014 regular season.

This promotion doesn’t exactly seem to be generating goodwill for Domino’s.
The promos were gone 5 minutes before the promotion even went live. Its supposed to be 1 per customer but people made multiple email accounts just so they could get multiple codes..Typical Dems, cheating the system
Yeah...I kind of wondered what the folks who coded the 0bamacare website would do for an encore...
Arby’s used to give away a free roast beef sandwich for 3 or more home runs by the Detroit Tigers. Now they give away a small curly fries for the same.
I enjoyed a domino-no pizza after homer baileys no-no at the end of last year. Wasn’t a bad deal.
I tried and lost.
It's not like it's real pizza.
I just finished eating the free pizza I got from this promotion.
Normally I wouldn’t get a Dominos pizza, butit was 100% free.
I don’t know why people are so upset, Domino’s is CRAP pizza, I wouldn’t feed it to my dog.
Actually, the thing started at noon but I forgot until about 20 after.
I still got one.
And, that was after getting timed out, no server messages for 10 minutes or more.
Then came the responses which said, there has been an error.
I just kept hitting submit again and again, not really paying attention. Had to wait a minute or two to even get the error responses.
I guess I didn’t even pay attention because I did not notice getting through and getting the code.
I hit submit one time and the message was not an error has occurred, but, this account has all ready received a code.
Later I got it by email.
Lincecum and the Giants had a no-no going for a while today.
I knew about the promotion so I tried getting in before it started, couldn’t get in..oh well, its really no biggie..Dominos is having large pizzas this week for 5.99
I think the problems came from so many people trying to get one that the servers overloaded.
So it took a long time for random requests to actually make it through the process.
It was overloaded for sure, sites like slickdeals.net had people using multiple computers to get the codes..does the code have to be used by a certain time?
Can’t people just pay for their pizza? Why do they feel they have to get it for free?
They’ll never top 10 cent beer night at Cleveland Municipal Stadium!!
It came by email and you just finished it, but it will leave via toilet.
Supposed to be used within 5 days.
And some people seem to think there is such a thing as a free lunch!
