Has Adam LaRoche won the Father of the Year contest? Consider the following... Adam LaRoche is a first baseman for the Chicago White Sox. He has brought his son, Drake to the ballpark for years, not just last year, his first with the White Sox. In fact, according to various reports, the White Sox looked upon him as their 26th man!

Now, all of a sudden, Chicago White Sox President Ken Williams told LaRoche that Drake, 14 was not really welcome in the clubhouse anymore. Although he didn't out right ban him, it was clear he wasn't welcome. The result, Adam LaRoche announced he was retiring, walking away from 13 million dollars!

Then, today, it was reported that the White Sox players almost boycotted their Thursday Spring Training game in support of LaRoche.
