Texas Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor will not be reaping additional rewards from his punch to the jaw of Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista.   

Per ESPN.com's Darren Rovell, Odor was scheduled appear at a Field of Dreams store in Frisco, Texas, on June 4 to sign pictures of the already-legendary punch that would be sold for $99. 

However, Field of Dreams store manager Brett Kravitz told Rovell the event was no longer taking place and representatives for Odor felt the timing was bad while he is appealing the eight-game suspension Major League Baseball handed down after the brawl. 

Fans would have been able to get additional Odor photos that weren't brawl-related signed for $59. 

Kravitz also told Rovell one of the potential inscriptions that fans could have asked for is "Bat Flip Will Get You Fat Lip." Bautista became a folk hero in October for throwing his bat after hitting a three-run homer against the Rangers in the American League Division Series.

The good news for Odor is that he still will be able to cash in on his newfound celebrity in a different way. Travis Heim, who owns Heim Barbecuewhich has a location opening in Fort Worth next monthhas already offered Odor free barbecue for life. 

"We just thought it would be a funny thing if we [gave] 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," Heim told Scott Gordon of NBC 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth. 

Odor is still awaiting to hear the results of his appeal, though it's certain he will have to miss some time for his role in the Rangers-Blue Jays brawl. 

While it would have been entertaining for fans to have photos of the Odor punch signed by the man himself, there was no logic to him profiting off that moment so soon afterward.
