That's called putting family first!

I don’t know much about Major League Baseball or Adam LaRoche, but what I do know is he’s a man who loves his family.

Adam LaRoche was a first baseman for the Chicago White Sox, but promptly handed in his resignation letter this week forfeiting the remainder of his contract to the tune of $13 million. That’s a huge chunk of change to walk away from! So, why did he do it? LaRoche was asked to limit the amount of time his 14-year-old son Drake spent in the clubhouse.

After Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche was asked to stop bringing his teenage son to the clubhouse so much, he decided to retire instead.

See why Adam chose to put his family over his baseball career.
