Adam Wainwright Delivers Arguably The Worst MLB Pitch of All-Time

When all is said and done with Adam Wainwright’s career, he could very well go down as being one of the best pitchers of all-time.  He’ll certainly go down as one of the St. Louis Cardinals best pitchers.  Which is why it was kind of fitting that such a big profile Major League Baseball player delivered what could go down as the worst pitch in the history of the league.  Remember the movie Major League when Ricky Vaughn pitches “Juuuuuust a bit outside?”  This pitch might actually be worse than that.   Take a look below.

And here’s the Ricky Vaughn pitch.

I mean it’s not even close. Wainwright’s pitch is 100 times worse.  When asked about the horrible pitch Wainwright actually explained that he was protecting his catcher:

“I saw him shift outside and I was looking at a different part of the plate,” Wainwright explained after the Cardinals’ 2-1 loss to the Cubs. “When I saw that, instantly — and I saw it before — I thought he was looking for a breaking ball and I had fastball grip. I did not want to throw a ball and hit him in the collarbone or something and have Yadier out. I pull-hooked it and erred on the side of not hitting him — by 20, 30 yards.”

Yeah you could say that again.  So far we have our number one highlight of the 2017 baseball season.
