Free pizza has quickly become an expectation for Reds fans. Cincinnati has only played 15 home games this season, but seven of them have resulted in Reds pitchers striking out at least 11 hitters. What happens when Reds pitchers fan 11 hitters or more in a home game? Well, LaRosa's Pizzeria gives away free pizza to anyone who can present a ticket stub from the game. And the local restaurant chain doesn't just hand out slices, either. No, they give fans eight-inch pizzas with any four toppings worth nearly $7. So, how much has LaRosa's promotion cost them so far in 2013? How about more than $100,000. This is a lot of dough, folks.

  • Back in the 90's the Detroit Piston's had a promotion that if they scored or their opponent scored more than 100, Little Caesars would give away a personal pan pizza. everytime they would get near 100 points, what ever fans were left in the stands would be screaming for the maximun so we could get a free pizza!
