FORT WORTH (105.3 The Fan) – The owner of a popular Fort Worth barbecue joint is offering Rougned Odor free food for life after punching Blue Jays outfielder Joey Bautista.
Travis Heim, the owner of Heim Barbecue, says if Odor ever walks into his restaurant to eat, he won’t get a bill when he’s done.
Heim says Odor’s punch was one of the most gratifying punches he’s ever seen.
“We saw it, and I was talking to my wife and I thought it would be really funny if we tried to contact Rougie (Rougned) and say next meal’s on us, and she said we should do t-shirts.” So that’s what the couple did.
Heim says they have sold over 100 “Rougned eats free” t-shirts and they are already ordering more.
Odor will have to wait for his free barbecue, however, as Heim’s is moving to another location.
It’s set to re-open this Summer.
