Founder and President
Big League Impact is the brainchild of St. Louis Cardinals legend Adam Wainwright, and reflects Adam’s creativity, generosity, and passion for maximizing effectiveness and impact. A two-time World Series champion, three-time All-Star, two-time Gold Glover, and a Silver Slugger, Adam’s accomplishments on the field are only rivaled by his heart off of it. With his leadership and guidance, Big League Impact has grown from a local “Fantasy Football for Charity” concept into a lightning rod for partnerships across countless industries and philanthropic areas, raising over $5.8 million dollars in the process. Adam and his wife Jenny have five children, and split their time between St. Louis and his native St. Simons Island, Georgia.
