Adam LaRoache unexpectedly retired from the White Sox and told an interviewer that one reason for his departure was his choice to go underground during a trip to a brothel in Southeast Asia to help rescue victims of sex trafficking.  He believed there were more important things in life than ball playing…

His remarks took his team mates by surprise and now his fans are wondering about his undercover work and the the non-profit organizations like the one with which he worked.  Those organizations and their efforts may inspire people like LaRoche as they put themselves at risk helping to free victims of human trafficking.

The organizations’ volunteers take part in initiatives called “raid and rescue” missions, going undercover with hidden cameras to help local authorities make arrests and free the victims in countries and communities that suffer from poverty.

The organization that LaRoche teams up with is Exodus Road.  There are other similar groups that say they work closely with authorities, governments, and foreign nationals.
