Adam LaRoche Gave up $13M Because The White Sox Wouldn’t Let His Kid Hang Out In The Clubhouse

According to Fox’s Ken Rosenthal, Adam LaRoche decided to abruptly retire from the Chicago White Sox because the club asked him to stop bringing his 14-year-old son into the team clubhouse.

The 36-year-old first baseman ended up walking away from the final $13 million on his two-year contract after tweeting out this retirment message with the hashtag #Familyfirst.
