Rougned Odor will never go hungry again — as long as he does not mind Texas barbecue.
The Fort Worth restaurant Heim Barbecue is promising the Rangers second baseman free food for life in recognition of his nasty right hook to Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista’s face.
The restaurant’s owner, Travis Heim, told the local NBC affiliate his restaurant is embracing Odor. They even printed t-shirts in his honor.
“We just thought it would be a funny thing if we Rougie free food because he wasn’t the only one who wanted to punch Bautista after last year, so you know, it’s kind of a justice, a little bit,” said owner Travis Heim.
Heim also is selling t-shirts promoting the free-food offer with the words “Rougned eats free” on the front.
He said response has been overwhelming.
