In an exclusive interview with ABC News, former Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche said that he had "zero regrets" about leaving $13 million on the table and retiring following the team's request for him to limit the amount of time his 14-year-old son, Drake, spent in the clubhouse.

"I haven't lost an ounce of sleep," LaRoche said.

LaRoche also touched on his conversation with White Sox executive VP Ken Williams that prompted his decision, saying it took him about 20 minutes to make up his mind after they talked.

"I don't hold a grudge. I don't hate anybody over there. You know, it just made my decision easy," LaRoche, alongside his son, said. "Honestly, it's not the end of the world to me. And I thank my parents for that. The way I was raised. Because baseball -- and I've said it before, I don't want to be defined by this game. I know there's a lot more to life."

Among the other topics LaRoche discussed was an undercover trip he took to the red-light districts of southeast Asia that exposed him to child trafficking. LaRoche said the trip changed his perspective and helped him realize that baseball wasn't everything.

LaRoche said he isn't ruling out returning to the game, though.

"I'm going to leave that up to the Lord. And if, for some reason, he wants me to go play again, then I won't be able to turn that down," he said.
