WATCH: Adam Wainwright throwing strikes from '165 feet' while training from home


ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Be careful driving through Adam Wainwright's neighborhood, you might just accidentally interrupt a long toss session as the St. Louis Cardinals pitcher has been throwing baseballs across the street outside his home. 

The 38-year-old is apparently doing whatever he can to stay in baseball shape as the team is waiting to find out what the next move will be after an outbreak of 17 COVID-19 positive players and staff members. 

Wainwright shared a video on Twitter Monday morning of him throwing "#strikesfrom165feet"

Stay ready fellas! Gotta do what you gotta do! ⁦@Cardinals⁩ Nation.... we'll be ready. Whenever that day comes... we'll be ready. #strikesfrom165feet

I don't see a tape measure out there to confirm his exact distance, but it's clearly no easy feat as the video shows five throws in row either hitting inside the yellow strike zone or just outside of it. And he even had to deal with some traffic throwing off his rhythm.

The 14-year veteran has started one of the five games the Cards have played this season. He held the Pirates to just one run on three hits in a 9-1 victory on July 25.

Another note from the video, at the very beginning you can hear a young child yell, "You can do it daddy!" which is just adorable to know that he's working out and spending time with his kids. 

He's not the only Cardinals pitcher to get creative as the team will now miss 13 games in a row, after the announcement of this week's series against the Pittsburgh Pirates being postponed. Jack Flaherty shared a picture on Twitter last week of how he's able to still throw a bullpen session while self-quarantining inside a small hotel room.

Apparently, he just tips the mattress up against the wall and throws into it. 

Let’s not pull a Joe Kelly and miss

In case you're wondering what "pull a Joe Kelly" means, he's talking about the video shared by the former Cardinals pitcher now with the Los Angeles Dodgers, who accidentally threw a ball into his house while training this summer.
