THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Baltimore Orioles fans who plan on flying the coop for the District’s new team can get a free pizza for turning in their Orioles’ pompoms.

After last week’s decision to give Washington a Major League Baseball team, Domino’s Pizza’s local franchise is rewarding its local customers who have had no other baseball team to root for other than the Orioles for 33 years.

Here’s the deal: Customers can bring Baltimore Orioles paraphernalia — from those bobble heads and floppy hats to jerseys and jackets — to any of the 59 participating Domino’s locations in the Washington area. Domino’s will give customers a free medium, one-topping pizza in return for the Orioles goods. The merchandise will be donated to a children’s charity in Baltimore.

The promotion ends Oct. 14.

Domino’s officials are expecting a good turnout from Washingtonians who have been waiting so long for a team of their own.

“There are a lot of people who make that road trip up to Camden Yards on a regular basis,” said Susan Fulton, marketing director.

“We do expect a big response.”
