Adam Wainwright: Captain America
As the oldest member of the Cardinals, Adam Wainwright is represented by the oldest Avenger, Captain America. Waino throws his curveball much like Captain America slings his shield– often and with devastating accuracy. Like Wainwright, Cap’n showed that he has a pretty nice swing as well:
In addition, these two are both on their way out. Captain America recently hung up his uniform, and soon Wainwright might be doing the same. We’ll miss seeing both of them in battles, but these heroes are both great off-field leaders as well.
Wainwright has spent much of this stay-at-home period donating money to those who are less fortunate than he is. He hosts various fundraisers throughout the year, and is always looking for ways to help others. Just like Captain America, Waino is a formidable opponent and a role model for countless people.
