Adam Wainwright is not a regular dad; he is a cool dad - A Hunt and Peck

Except for those cargo shorts and the shirt from Farm and Home - that is vintage dad attire right there.

The sun sets on the comfortable Tuesday evening. The girls are ready to battle it out in a friendly machine pitch softball game. But what is this? A malfunction? Whatever will they do if the machine will not work?

But look! Out of the crowd steps a hero - a six-foot-seven hero wearing a compression sleeve on his left leg and the most "dad" attire the world has ever seen.

"I can do it," the man says.

And Adam Wainwright did it. Well, sort of - he did give up nineteen runs, but considering he was pitching to his own daughters team, throwing "pipe shots" is probably the goal. - Cut4

He did tell us he would play again this year.
