(CBS) After a week of controversy following Adam LaRoche’s abrupt retirement announcement after executive Kenny Williams requested that the time his 14-year-son spent around the clubhouse be significantly reduced, one fan has jumped at the opportunity to mock the situation.
A sarcastic GoFundMe page tagged the “LaRoche Family Recovery Fund” has been created with the goal of raising $13 million — the 2016 salary that LaRoche walked away from by retiring. The page has quite the hilarious description too.
Beloved member of the White Sox organization, Drake LaRoche, was abruptly removed from the team by executive VP Kenny Williams. This gave his loving father, Adam LaRoche, no other choice but to stand by his son and retire from the team, losing 13 million dollars in the process.
Please help support the LaRoche family and get them back on their feet.
Drake not only lost his position in the clubhouse and on the team, but also he lost the guidance and leadership from multiple father figures on the Chicago White Sox. This transition into a normal education outside of Major League Baseball will be tough for Drake and we’re asking for your help.
Also we we will be starting a clothes drive for Drake since he will no longer be receiving custom jerseys and uniforms. If you have any lightly worn clothing (size Boys XL) please let us know.
The page had raised $1,707 as of early Monday afternoon. Let’s hope that gets tossed to a charity of some sort.
