Former White Sox 1B/DH Adam LaRoche and his son Drake will appear on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Anchor T.J. Holmes will have the two “talking family and [Adam’s] decision to leave baseball.”
Adam retired abruptly in mid-March because White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams asked him to limit the amount of time Drake spent in the clubhouse. It turned out that a few players complained about Drake’s frequent presence.
Adam was recently the feature of an ESPN piece by Tim Keown in which he quizzically discussed not only his departure from the White Sox, but a quest he went on with Blaine Boyer to south Asian brothels in an attempt to rescue underage sex slaves. The whole situation has been… interesting… to say the least, and now he’ll be on daytime TV.
