If you thought I was done with this story, well I lied. There is still more fun to be had. The fine folks at Deadspin found a wonderful GoFundMe for Drake LaRoche. The fund is clearly a gag, but may be the perfect cap in this wonderful news story, that seems to find something new to give just when you think it’s run it’s course. The fund is seeking 13 million to replace Adam’s salary and has several celebrity backers.
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.
That there is a GoFundMe and it was started by a Chris Sale is funny enough, but it’s the comments that just keep on winning.
The fund can be found here, and there’s a lot more goodness to be found. As this gains publicity I expect the hilarity to rise.
