Retired MLB first baseman Adam LaRoche played 13 seasons in the Majors
Adam LaRoche grew up around baseball. He not only played the game, he was around it constantly—his dad pitched in the Majors when he was a kid. Developing a deep love for the game his dad taught him all about was practically inevitable.
“I remember some of my best memories being at the ballpark with my dad,” Adam reflects. “I remember saying, ‘One day I’m going to play pro ball, and if I happen to have a son, I’m gonna make sure he gets these same memories.’”
So when Adam’s son, Blake, reached the age where he could join him at the ballpark, Adam didn’t leave him behind.
