Cardinals Former Ace Adam Wainwright To Headline A Concert His Final Weekend At Busch Stadium

When it comes to longevity and success with one team as a pitcher in Major League Baseball, St. Louis Cardinals (former) ace Adam Wainwright ranks right up there at the top.

The 42-year-old has made a staggering 477 appearances for the Cards since 2005, and has made it clear that he’s officially calling it quits once this season ends. Of course, this season has been less than stellar for Wainwright and the Cards, who sit in last place in the NL Central.

With a 4-11 record, whopping 7.95 ERA, and just 3 quality starts in his 20 appearances, Wainwright is probably the worst starter in the majors this year, but just one win shy of 200 for his career, he’s gonna keep trotting out to the mound until the season is done.

So, the question is, what’s his next career venture?

The answer is…

Country music singer.

We first caught a glimpse of this a year ago, when announcers decided to play Wainwright’s new song “Sounds Real Good To Me” for an awkward amount of time when he was on the mound.

And to open up the 2023 season, Wainwright sang the National Anthem on opening day at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Needless to say, it’s easy to see that the Georgia native has been dying for this opportunity to focus on his music for awhile.

With that being said, the guy is gearing up to headline a whole concert at Busch Stadium on September 30th, right after the Cards play the Reds.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Derrick Goold, the concert will feature three songs from Wainwright’s upcoming album in the works, and will also feature a fireworks display.

I’ll admit, everything I’ve heard from Wainwright is pretty mid. Well, lower mid…

However, you have to respect the guy for wanting to showoff his second passion, and he’s earned the right to do it in front of the city he’s been apart of for the past 18 years.
