The Phillies outfielder is having a phenomenal season hitting .274/.321/.545 with 21 home runs and 57 RBI. Due to his breakout season, fans want to get his autograph for obvious reasons.
Carl's Cards in Havertown had scheduled Dom Brown to be in their store on July 16th for a signing event but it was cancelled.
Why? According to Carl's Cards website, it was because of Dom Brown's dad.
Due to extreme unforeseen circumstances surrounding Domonic Brown’s father, our autograph signing with Domonic Brown has been canceled. Here, at Carl’s Cards we have done everything we possibly could to make this work. Unfortunately, because of his father’s lack of cooperation we could not get him to change his mind. We have a signed contract in hand, but he has chosen to no longer honor it based on Dom’s recent All Star performance. We are just as disappointed to make this announcement as you are. We were really looking forward to this signing. If you have already purchased tickets, please notify us if you would like a refund or if you would like to exchange your ticket for an upcoming autograph signing. Please direct any and all questions/concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but this is completely and unfortunately out of our hands. We at Carl’s Cards hate these sorts of situations.
I don't know the full situation here but this does not reflect well on the 25 year old. Although this doesn't look good, I doubt it will really sway the opinions of people who watch him play. For the sake of the fans, I hope he reschedules.
