On Wednesday, White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche retired after the team asked him to cut down his son's time in the clubhouse. Here's how his peers reacted.
Takes a hell of a man to step away from the game he loves for what he believes in @e3laroche #faithandfamilyfirst pic.twitter.com/T1YKoJ8uUT— Andy Laroche (@LarocheAndy) March 16, 2016
I hope I have the same relationship with my future children that Adam LaRoche has with Drake. He is a man of principle. #familyfirst— Gordon Beckham (@gordonbeckham) March 16, 2016

Hey @BMcCarthy32 did the White Sox ask you to take down the picture of your newborn yet?— Brett Anderson (@BrettAnderson35) March 16, 2016
