Adam Wainwright is gearing up for his final season in Major League Baseball.
The two-time World Series champion has been with the St. Louis Cardinals for his entire career and has had more than his fair share of notable moments.
But on Saturday, as he made the start in the Cardinals’ spring training opener against the Washington Nationals, the broadcast team on Bally Sports Midwest highlighted something very important.
On the inside of his glove, Wainwright had the names of all five of his children stitched inside of a heart in the middle.

Aside from being one of the greatest pitchers in the history of the Cardinals, Wainwright has always been known for having a big heart.
And clearly, that heart is full of love and compassion for those he cares about, especially his children.
This custom-stitched glove is simply wholesome and reminds us all that things such as these are even bigger than baseball.
On the field, Wainwright is a fierce competitor and leader.
Off the field, he’s a loving husband and father who truly cares about his family, so much so that he got the names of his children stitched into his glove.
This will be Wainwright’s final season in Major League Baseball.
He’s been with the Cardinals since 2005 and even closed out both the NLCS and World Series in 2006.
He has also earned three-All-Star nods and finished in the top three in Cy Young voting three times.
But when he pitches this year, he’ll have more than just baseball on his mind.NEXT: Cardinals Insider Comments On The Future Of The Pitching Staff
