The Opening Drive

Wednesdays with Cardinals Pitcher Adam Wainwright

Waino joins the show to talk about why he usually likes to pitch on his birthday, the big difference to his success in his late-30s compared to now, how he made the decision to change up the beard, why it felt so good to be rooting during a winner, his joy from watching other pitchers go for a no-hitter, the way he jinxes other pitchers if they’re no-hitting the Cardinals, and big debate between wearing your pants long vs. short.
