MLB fans in uproar over free-pizza promotion gone wrong
MAY 27, 2014 4:29p ET
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.
With Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett hurling the first no-no of the year Sunday, Tuesday was the day to log on to MLB.com and get your free pizza. There was only one problem: The site couldn't handle all the traffic, and some people were left pizza-less.
This, OF COURSE, led to fans voicing their displeasure on Twitter, which then led to the hashtag #DomiNoNo trending during the afternoon.
Here is a sampling of what the snubbed pizza people had to say:
