WPDE Sports Throwback Thursday: Wainwright goes fishing
Thu, 10 Oct 2013 04:11:59 GMT — Saint Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright pitched a complete game gem in a 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates to advance the Cards to the NLCS. Wainwright spent the summer of 2002 on the Grand Strand as a member of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. During his summer at the beach, WPDE's Mark Haggard took the pitcher and fellow future big leaguer Adam LaRoche out on the Atlantic Ocean for some deep sea fishing with Harry Evans. LaRoche is currently with the Washington Nationals. Both Wainwright and LaRoche have fond memories of the fishing expedition, including a very seasick Mark Haggard who still was able to deliver a great feature story.
