October 3, 2023

When Adam Wainwright announced his retirement from baseball, he made a promise to his children that he would bring a family dog into their lives.

Little did he know, the St. Louis Cardinals had a heartwarming surprise in store for him.

Wainwright had always told his kids they couldn't get a dog until he retired from baseball.

Before his final game with the team on Sunday, the Cardinals organized a touching 35-minute ceremony for the 42-year-old pitcher and his family.

During the event, the team presented the Wainwrights with an adorable Lagotto Romagnolo puppy.

The Wainwright family is a large one, consisting of four daughters: Baylie Grace (17), Addison (14), Macy James (11), and Sadee Faith (5), as well as a 4-year-old son named Caleb Adam.
