Adam Wainwright Promised His Kids a Puppy When He Retired. The Cardinals Delivered on the Team’s Final Day.

From an AP story headlined “Adam Wainwright promised his kids a puppy when he retired. The Cardinals delivered on the team’s final day.”:

Adam Wainwright promised his children he would get a family dog when he retired from baseball.

He didn’t have to. The St. Louis Cardinals presented the Wainwrights a Lagotto Romagnolo puppy during a 35-minute ceremony before the 42-year-old pitcher’s final game with the team on Sunday. Wainwright’s wife Jenny named the puppy Louie.

The Wainwrights have four daughters: Baylie Grace (17), Addison (14), Macy James (11) and Sadee Faith (5) along with 4-year-old son Caleb Adam.
