Adam LaRoche cited the Chicago White Sox limiting his son Drake’s access to the locker room as the reason for his retirement earlier this week, and it’s created a massive conversation across the league. Several players have supported LaRoche’s decision, and White Sox ace Chris Sale is the latest.
He made a strong statement on Friday by hanging two jerseys at his locker: one for Adam, and one for Drake. They were signed by Adam’s son, one of which read "Thanks for everything. I’ll never forget you!"
Furthermore, Sale ripped White Sox management, saying players were "bold-faced lied to" by executive vice president Kenny Williams after he held a two-hour meeting regarding Drake’s access to the team.
